Renewable Energy for a Sustainable Future 

There is an
urgent need for a new paradigm that integrates clean technologies into our
day-to-day life. Presently, world energy supplies are highly dependent on
conventional energy sources, mainly gas, oil and coal. Global warming,
environmental degradation and increased fuel prices threaten the future of
humanity. The current crisis is a clear call to transform our awareness,
lifestyle and use of low-cost and environmental friendly renewables. 

“India One” Solar Thermal Power Plant   

In 2011 World Renewal Spiritual Trust (WRST), in
partnership with Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University initiated the
design, development and installation of “India One” – a 1 MW solar thermal
power plant in Abu Road, Rajasthan. This research project uses in-house
developed 60 m² parabolic dishes that feature innovative thermal storage for
night operation. The 60m² dish is a new development based on years of experience
with parabolic concentrators. “India One” generates sufficient heat and power
for a campus of 25,000 people.
