OUR MISSION: TO ENRICH POLICY-MAKING WITH INNOVATIVE APPROACHES USING SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY FOR A SUSTAINABLE, SECURE AND INCLUSIVE SOCIETY

NEW MATERIALS

CSTEP is involved in integrating quantum mechanical simulations with data mining and the experimental validation of new materials. The overall aim is to develop substitutes that are more efficient and affordable for clean energy applications such as batteries and hence it focusses on:
•    Batteries for transportation
•    Integration of renewable energy with grids
•    Strategic applications
•    Alternatives to rare earth and energy-critical elements are being addressed using the same methodology.

Ongoing Projects
Development of Energy Storage Technology and Electric Vehicles in Karnataka  
As a member of the Hybrid Electrical Vehicles Programme task force of the Government of Karnataka, CSTEP actively advises on several issues. The analyses include:
•    Cost benefit
•    Charging infrastructure
•    Impact of charging on electricity grid
•    Environmental impact and carbon finance
•    Risk and safety analysis
