  1. The Ministry of Non-Conventional Energy Sources has been supporting R&D for technology and manpower development in Renewable Energy. Present emphasis is on reduction in cost and increase in efficiency. For sustained development of this sector, efforts are being made so that Renewable Energy is driven to a large extent by the market and the consumer.
  2. With a view to achieving this goal, the Ministry has evolved a policy of supporting research and development with close involvement of the industrial sector. It is hoped that there will be increased interaction and close co-operation between the research and teaching institutions of the country - which are reservoirs of knowledge and experience, and the Indian industry which has the requisite entrepreneurship and market-orientation.
