ALIGARH : The Electrical Engineering Section (EES), University Polytechnic, Aligarh Muslim University organized a webinar on “Emerging Trends in the Thermal Power Sector”.
In his address, Principal, University Polytechnic, Professor Arshad Umar said that with the inclusion of renewable energy resources in the Indian power sector, the coal-based thermal power generation capacity is expected to get a bit diluted by the year 2030 but will remain a significant player. In India, the power industry has a bright future and the continuous economic expansion increases electricity demand. The Indian government’s aim of achieving ‘Power for All’ is leading to rapid capacity building in the country.
The keynote speaker, Er Shahzad Alam (Manager, NTPC) highlighted the basic concepts and focused on the recent trends and technologies being employed in the power industry. He shared his experience in the thermal power sector and addressed queries of the student participants.
Meanwhile, Prof Altamush Siddiqui (Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Technology), in his voice message, emphasized that countries that succeed in positioning their innovative work in thermal power plant development correctly, can generate revenue by selling the expertise to other countries. This phenomenon has led to such countries becoming pioneers in thermal power research and development, creating wider opportunities or innovations in the field.
Earlier, Mr Mohd Umar Rehman (Programme Coordinator) welcomed the participants and elaborated the need and significance of the webinar.
Dr Imdadullah (Convener) highlighted the objectives of the webinar. Mr Tehzeeb Ahmed Abbasi (Incharge, EES) proposed the vote of thanks.
