Solar & Nuclear Energy are the 2 resolutions for India’s Energy problem – Dr D V Gopinath

gopinath-english-report“The standard of living is measured by an Index called Human Development Index (HDI), which in turn represents the development of the country. Out of 187 nations with 0.55 points India stands in 135th place globally. One of the reasons for this low rank is the insufficiency in power production”, said the senior scientist Dr D V Gopinath of BARC, Mumbai. He was giving a guest lecture at PG Department of Physics, St Philomena College on 27th October 2015. He also said, “Coal and water are the two main resources of power generation in India. Unfortunately power generated by these two resources is not sufficient to meet the need of the country. Therefore we have to look into other alternatives like solar and nuclear power generation. If it is done, then the problem of power crisis and environmental pollution can be reduced significantly. The state and central governments should encourage and support the use of solar power for house hold requirements”.

The HOD of Physics Dr A P Radhakrishna welcomed the guest. The coordinator of PG Physics, Dr Deepak D’Silva did vote of thanks. Students and faculty members of the department were participated in the programme.
