About the Department

Established as Centre in 2010 under the aegis of Madanjeet School of Green Energy Technologies has been elevated to Department of Green Energy Technology in 2020 with a vision to promote education and research in environmentally clean methods of energy production, conservation and utilization. The department offers M.Tech. in Green Energy Technology, which is partly supported by the South Asia Foundation (SAF) and research (Ph.D.) in the field of renewable energy & related subjects. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has recognized and approved the department as a Nodal Centre. The department promotes research in the fields of all clean sources of energy production, conversion and utilization like solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, energy storage, fuel cells, biofuels, wind energy, ocean energy, chemical energy, applications of nanotechnology for energy conversion, etc. The department has well-trained faculties to teach, offer consultancy and take up research work in many core areas of green energy. The establishment of MOUs with various alternate energy generating firms specializing in photovoltaic, and solar-thermal has taken place. In addition, several MOUs with industries specializing in solar thermal devices and power plant engineering are in the pipeline.

Vision and Message of Head of Department

Dr. R. Arun Prasath

  • Professor

A very warm welcome to the Department of Green Energy Technology at Pondicherry University. The young energetic DGET welcomes all science post-graduates and engineering graduates (CSIR/NET/GATE qualified and non-qualified) who have a desire for post-graduation and research degree in green energy technology. Currently, the department has eleven well-trained faculties who are dedicated to teaching, conducting research, and offering consultancy in various areas of green energy technologies. The Vision, Mission, and Value of the department tuned as


  • Strive for progress in teaching, research and outreach to promote renewable energy technologies to comply with and be recognized on par with international standards to enhance our global reach and Viksit Bharat@2047.


  • To teach, train, develop skilled human resources and conduct research and development in niche areas of renewable energy technologies for Atmanirbhar Bharat.
  • To become the nodal center to deliver consultancy and expertise to industrial and governmental organizations.
  • To be the hub for technological development, solutions, incubation, validation and support/promote entrepreneurs.


  • Integrity and commitment to teamwork.
  • Inclusive, transparent and intellectually courageous.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome and join us for learning, teaching, and researching to promote renewable energy for sustainability. Let us work together to build a greener, more sustainable world.
