  • 1. Cleantech…
    …is not just clean power
    Presentation to IIT KGP Seminar, 3 Apr 2011, Chennai
    NarasimhanSanthanam
    Director, EAI
  • 2. What is Cleantech?
    Cleantech = Energy and environment related technologies developed for a more sustainable world.
    www.eai.in
  • 3. Cleantech is more than clean power
    While clean power (renewable energy) is an important and the most visible part of cleantech, cleantech is a much wider domain
    The Cleantech market is almost 8 times as large as renewable energy
    www.eai.in
  • 4. Cleantech Drivers
    www.eai.in
  • 5. Cleantech and Engineering
    Why Should You Care?
    What Should You Know?
    How Can You Start?
    www.eai.in
    www.eai.in
  • 6. “WHYShould I Care?”
    www.eai.in
  • 7. Cleantech…
    Touches every domain
    Is in its early days
    Is all about engineering
    www.eai.in
  • 8. Cleantech Touches Every Domain…

    Lifestyle
    www.eai.in
  • 9. Cleantech is in Its Early Days
    An analogy with IT
    1st PC appeared in 1975 (Altair)
    100,000 computers sold in 1978
    290 MILLION sold in 2008
    Growth of 3000 times, or 300,000 %, in 30 years
    Today, computers are everywhere
    www.eai.in
  • 10. Cleantech is in Its Early Days
    % share of renewables in power = about 2% (other than large hydro)
    % share of cleantech in other domains = less than 1%
    Over the next 10 years, cleantech will grow by over dramatically in terms of market penetration, business, jobs and career
    In 20 years, cleantech will be everywhere
    We are in the 1978 of cleantech.
    www.eai.in
  • 11. Cleantech is about Engineering
    The last revolution (dotcom) was all about
    The cleantech revolution is all about
    Programming
    Engineering
