About Prof. Prof. Anil Kottantharayil

Prof. Anil Kottantharayil is presently leading the silicon solar cell, and module reliability research activities at the National Centre for Photovoltaic Research and Education (NCPRE) at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay). NCPRE is funded by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy of the Government of India. He is also involved in two binational projects on PV. In the Solar Energy Research Institute for India and United States (SERIIUS), his team contributes to the efforts to mitigate soiling issues on PV panels and also on the reliability of PV modules.

He and his team also collaborates with Arizona State University and NREL on these issues through the SERIIUS project. SERIIUS is funded by the Department of Science and Technology of the Government of India and Department of Energy of USA. Recently they have received an approval for an Indo-UK

project on microgrids. In this project, the project team would set up hybrid micro systems at remote locations in India. His team would study the reliability of PV modules in these installations.

Professor Kottantharayil has delivered lectures and talks on PV to audiences at different levels from school children to graduate students on the one hand, and professionals including practicing engineers from the PV industry, bank managers and Government officials on the other hand. He also consults Government entities and industry on rooftop PV potential and silicon manufacturing technologies in India.
