Visakhapatnam: With the focus shifting towards solar energy as an effective non-conventional energy source, Indian scientists have achieved a simple yet effective technological breakthrough which will increase the efficiency in harnessing solar energy.
Speaking at the inaugural session of a national seminar-cum-workshop on non-conventional energy sources at Delta Studies Institute, Andhra University, T. Harinar-ayana, the director of Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute, said that, “With this new technique, energy generation will increase by 60-70%.”
