Time: 14:00 – 15:00 (GMT)

Location: Online

Utilising renewable energy from offshore wind farms

In this webinar, Commonwealth Alumnus Dr Pradeep Kumar Dammala will highlight the potential of integrating sustainable wind energy as an alternative cooling power source for Nuclear Power Plants during seismic events and emergencies, such as tsunamis and earthquakes. He will raise the importance of using sustainable and renewable energy sources to meet growing energy demands and the availability of wind energy in India generated by offshore wind farms.

Dr Dammala is the winner of the 2023 CSC Research Impact Awards topical prize: invest in our planet. To learn more about Dr Dammala’s winning article, visit the CSC website.

This webinar will address the CSC development theme, Science and technology for development.

The webinar will last for approximately one hour, including a Q&A session.
