The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) on February 18, 2020, has decided to set up the Renewable Energy Standardization Cell (RESC). The Standardization Cell are envisaged to act as a channel of communication facilitating the identification of new subjects and relevant experts for standardization in different sectors.

The objectives of the RESC are as follows:

Ø  To identify the areas in renewable energy where standards needs to be developed or updated or adopted.

Ø  Identify and peruse international standards such as ISO, IEC, etc. for applications in Indian climate conditions. In case modifications are required, the same should be done and tried in test labs for revision suitable for Indian climate conditions.

Ø  Initiate the process of developing standards involving experts from R&D institutions, test labs and industry.

The Standardization Cell will interact with relevant subject experts from R&D institutions, test labs, industries and BIS to seek inputs for developing or updating Indian Standards in the relevant subjects. The draft will be provided to Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) for further action.
