Solar Power For All

SUNRISE: Strategic University Network to Revolutionize Indian Solar Energy

SUNRISE is a joint UK-India solar power project aiming to deliver low-cost photovoltaics to rural India.

Led by Swansea University, the SUNRISE network unites several top universities and industries from the UK and India in an equitable research collaboration. Through the establishment of this international network  we will develop and implement the technology necessary to build a minimum of five solar-powered building demonstrators in rural Indian villages within the lifetime of the project.

We also hope to increase research and delivery capabilities to ensure the continued development of sustainable communities in India.

The project is funded by GCRF (Global Challenges Research Fund), a UKRI fund set up to support research that addresses challenges faced by developing countries.
