Energy centre waits for kick-start

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A proposal to set up a Centre for Excellence in New and Renewable Energy and Conservation and a residential model polytechnic, mainly for SC/ST students, has been left in limbo due to lack of inter-departmental coordination and bureaucratic laxity.

With a total outlay of Rs.30 crore, the project was to be set up at Kuzhalmannam in Palakkad.

The centre was to proactively work with local self-government institutions mainly in the realms of decentralised power generation. This was projected to offer practical solutions to crisis in power sector.
