Recently, IIT Madras, in association with Teerthaa, a sustainability-focused firm, announced that it plans to develop an Atmospheric Water Generator device, powered by Solar Power. The IIT Madras and Teerthaa initiative, by going for solar power, is clearly looking for more semi-permanent or use cases in areas where access is an issue for both clean water and power.

In December 2018, IIT Indore installed a 422 kW rooftop solar system. The project was commissioned by BVG India Ltd and is spread across 4220 square meters of space and is slated to generate around 1,580 kWp of energy every year.  This will help the institute reduce its carbon footprint by 500 tons each year.
