Solar Energy: Solar energy works by capturing the sun's energy and turning it into electricity for your home or business. Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten salt power plants and artificial photosynthesis.

Smart Energy : Smart energy is a cost-effective and sustainable energy system in which renewable energy production, infrastructures, and consumption are integrated and coordinated through energy services, active users, and enabling technologies.

About Workshop:  Learn and Build a project on Solar and Smart Energy using Embedded System in this course. This includes practical exposure to solar energy production along with the real-life application of charging a battery. Students also learn the concepts of Smart energy and other industry trends like green energy, smart building, smart grid and energy harvesting technologies. In today's time its a need to switch to reneweable energy sources to save our climate, save non-renewable energy, reduce pollution, money saving etc. In this workshop students will learn about the benefits of renewable sources like Solar Energy with practical exposure on how to use solar energy and covert it to smart energy with some real time projects.
