Solar Power For All

SUNRISE: Strategic University Network to Revolutionize International Solar Energy

SUNRISE is an international project to address global energy poverty through the development of next-generation solar technologies.

Led by Swansea University, the SUNRISE network unites several leading universities and industrial collaborators from the Global South in a transdisciplinary research collaboration. This international network will develop and implement the technology necessary to build a minimum of five solar-powered building demonstrators in rural India. In doing so, we hope to establish an enduring collaboration and increase the capabilities of all partners.
