Three projects are in the realm of Energy and focus on IIT Madras Energy Consortium’s vision of enabling energy transition towards a low-carbon future.

Tamil Nadu has identified 15 offshore locations to establish wind turbines.

Today, Denmark is paving the way for investments in new technologies. We see great potential in sharing mutual knowledge with India and its bright engineers, which can help in implementing these technologies,” Aagaard was quoted as saying in a press release.

Tamil Nadu has identified 15 offshore locations to establish wind turbines. Denmark is collaborating on a plan to establish the first offshore wind farm in Tamil Nadu, he said.

On the collaboration with Denmark, Krishnan said: “Today, we are on the cusp of an important relationship between Tamil Nadu and Denmark – in the areas of clean energy, and how to tackle climate change. Tamil Nadu continues to be a leader in renewable energy.”

“More than 50 percent of the installed capacity in Tamil Nadu are from renewable energy sources with potential for expansion in wind, solar and green hydrogen,” he added.

In another development, Denmark-headquartered multinational company Danfoss said it would take up joint work on drinking water for coastal regions using renewable energy in association with IIT Madras.

The association between Danfoss and the premier technical institution is to promote cooperation in engineering education and scientific research.

Danfoss India President Ravichandran Purushothaman exchanged documents with IIT Madras Dean (Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research) professor Manu Santhanam on the occasion.
