Great ideas, the urge to experiment, the willingness to take risks and the drive to make a difference in the lives of our customers are the core values which drive IST. These values are the fuel behind our R&D efforts. Innovation is the mantra that has energized IST Family and Research Scholars to work under IST R&D from its very inception. We want to innovate, improve and make a powerful impact in the field of Renewable Energy.

Our R&D team constantly strives to improve product design and performance, machinery and production methods and these are integrated into the daily work pattern. A separate space is dedicated to R&D, where the equipment and facilities are upgraded as frequently as the products. Products are tested using the latest, most sophisticated testing equipment. Existing products are improved, new products and processes are created.

The IST R&D unit has the people, the equipment, the freedom and the backing of the top management.

The Institute for Solar Technology Research & Development team creates the technological foundations for supplying energy efficiently and on an environmentally sound basis in industrialized, threshold and developing countries. With its research focusing on energy conversion, energy efficiency, energy distribution and energy storage, it contributes to the broad application of new technology.


IST R&D will accelerate the development of Solar PV Technologies by lowering the cost per watt of Photovoltaics (PV) and Thermal Applications. The six key SERIIUS objectives are the following:

  1. Focus efforts on high-impact fundamental and applied research and development (R&D) to create disruptive technologies in PV and Thermal Applications.
  2. Identify and quantify the critical technical, economic, and policy issues for solar energy development and deployment in India.
  3. Overcome barriers to technology transfer by teaming research institutions and industry in an effective project structure-cutting the time from discovery to technology development and commercialization, through effective coordination, communication, and intellectual property management.
  4. Tries to create a new platform for bi-national collaboration using a formalized R&D project structure, along with effective management, coordination, and decision processes.
  5. Create a sustainable network from which to build large collaborations and foster a collaborative culture and outreach programs. This will include the use of existing and new methodologies for collaboration based on advanced electronic and Web-based communication to facilitate functional international focused teams.
  6. Create a strong workforce development program in solar energy science and technology.


Quality Planning

Our goal is to fully satisfy customer expectations through the quality of our products and services. Quality improvement is therefore the responsibility of every stakeholder, from the top management to the channel partners.

New Product Review

Product introductions have been at the heart of our success in this hyper-competitive market. With our strong focus on innovation, we have a rigorous system for reviewing all our products against the parameters of functionality and changing customer needs.

Process Capability Evaluations

In response to increasing globalization, we adopt benchmarked process standards, reducing variation, relieving process bottlenecks, eliminating rework and managing capacity. This has substantially reduced product development and production time.

Quality Education and Training

Continuous learning and improvement are fundamental components of every job performed, rather than a special corporate initiative. Therefore, there is continuous emphasis on increasing awareness of quality principles through the organization. The requisite directives and standards are discussed and disseminated regularly and teams are trained intensively.
Training has been the main focus of the organization, not only in-house but also the training of our dealers, distributors and associates for their growth and for achieving targets.

Supplier Capability Surveys

Our suppliers contribute substantially to the quality of our products. Therefore, our suppliers must meet the same high standards that we have adopted. This is ensured through regular validation of their quality control set-up.

IST Alumni

A good platform to learn new ideas in Solar Technology

Asst. Manager at TaeguTec India P Limited

The instructor was committed towards his teaching which was completely presentation based and he answered every question we asked him. The method was completely presentation based which help us to have a better understanding. Very good institute which is imparting a wonderful knowledge about the solar technology which will thus help us in becoming aware of the transition which is taking place in the country and be a part of it.

- Prashant Juneja,
Asst. System Engineer at TATA Consultancy Service Ltd

The presenter had a very good l knowledge of the solar business in India as well as of Solar Technology so I got some very good ideas that can also apply to my market. Understanding the solar system especially the DC part as well as the whole planing and feasibility process. Coming from an Ac background and working with some solar technologies from time to time I realized that there was so much I had been missing. I am now more confident to tackle the solar market. They helped consolidate the lectures on design as well as appreciate practical aspects of wiring as well as mechanical installation. lST very well structured and comprehensive programme. Excellent investment for anyone wanting to venture into Solar business.
