Solar Power For All

SUNRISE: Strategic University Network to Revolutionize Indian Solar Energy

SUNRISE is a UK-India 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 UK and India 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 UK-India collaboration and increase research and delivery capabilities in both countries.
