Department of Energy

About the Department


The Department of Energy was established in August 1983 as part of the Post-Centenary Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the University of Madras. Considering the scenario of ever increasing energy need of our country in particular and at the global level in general, in terms of conventional and non-conventional energy resources, it was realized that in order to foster, promote and sustain scientific research in all spheres (viz., pure, applied and educational) of energy, better utilization and conservation of the existing energy sources, an inter-disciplinary approach would be the most appropriate option.


The mission is to motivate, encourage and develop scientific manpower through innovative academic training and endeavors for national growth and global needs in Energy Sciences.

  • To foster and promote scientific research in all spheres of energy (pure, applied and educational)
  • To sustain conservation and better utilization of the existing energy sources by means of inter-disciplinary approaches
  • To attain a stature of centre of excellence with self-reliance in Energy Studies
  • To set up partnership in R & D projects with national laboratories in Materials for Energy Devices
  • To initiate interactive linkages with leading technological institutions within the country and abroad.
  • To foster and strengthen industrial consultancy services
  • To support innovative academic programs for the training of scientific personnel for our national and global needs in Science, Industry and Education.
