Green Energy Generating Systems from Waste | Pankaj Kalita | TEDxRawatpur

Pankaj Kalita (Ph.D.) is an Assistant Professor at the School of Energy Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati.
He has more than 4 years of teaching and 10 years of research experience in the field of renewable energy (solar energy, thermochemical and biochemical conversion of biomass and energy storage), Thermal management of PVT, and Li-ion battery pack, and Energy Management. He has published more than 50 peer reviewed research papers in various reputed journals, 12 book chapters and more than 20 conference papers. He has implemented many research and consultancy projects. At present two research projects are in progress in the areas of energy storage, and renewable energy integration for remote electrification. He was a recipient of India’s Distinguished Visiting Fellow awarded by the University of Nottingham, the United Kingdom in 2010. He was also selected for attending the prestigious India-UK young scientist networking conference on low carbon technologies held during 2-3 December 2009 in Kolkata organized by British Council Kolkata. He has also represented IIT Guwahati in the 2nd Winter School held at Gifu University, Japan in 2016. He has been awarded an early career research award by Science Engineering Research Board (SERB), DST, Govt. of India. He has organized five short-term courses, one national conference, and one International conference sponsored by TEQIP in the areas of clean energy, waste to energy, thermo fluids, and renewable energy successfully. He has also organized a GIAN course on Advances in Combustion and Gasification Technology successfully in 2018.
In this talk, Dr. Pankaj Kalita simplifies the technical aspects of climate change and explains with statistics that how mechanization driven by fossil fuels energy became a major reason for global warming. He elaborates how his lab is developing renewable and carbon-neutral energy generating systems mainly from waste to mitigate climate change Dr. Pankaj Kalita has more than 4 years of teaching and 10 years of research experience in the field of renewable energy (solar energy, thermochemical and biochemical conversion of biomass and energy storage), Thermal management of PVT and Li-ion battery pack and Energy Management.
