US institute looks for Indian partners for energy storage

Friday December 16, 2011 05:50:32 PM, IANS

Kolkata: A US energy research institute is looking for potential industrial partners in India for business collaboration in energy storage, its director said Friday.

"We are looking at the potential of energy storage in more rural applications. We are exploring the opportunities in terms of collaboration, particularly in energy storage technology of our energy institute and potential Indian companies who are interested," said Sanjoy Banerjee, director, Energy Institute, of the City University of New York.

Banerjee also feels that any country should have a mixed energy basket, and advocated a strong role of nuclear power.

"India should have a basket of energy which should include nuclear, solar, gas and other energy. India doesn't have a huge amount of wind so that's probably less of a option than other countries, as offshore wind has pretty high cost. So if you look at all these, then nuclear has to play a strong role to play for the energy security of the country," he said.

"It's all about energy security because if you have to import a lot of oil, then probably it becomes an insecurity of a country, so this is a risk. So nuclear becomes a way to spread the risk," he said.
