Research & Development

GERMI has established two research wings- Petroleum and Renewable Energy. The Petroleum Wing has two major groups.

Petroleum Laboratories whose capabilities are in Petrographic studies, Rock Physics and Geochemical Studies and the Data Interpretation Centre with Capabilities on G&G data analysis, Seismic Data enhancement & characterization. The Renewable Research Wing supports fundamental and applied research ranging from solar cell material and device designs to plant performance analysis. As well in the environmental research focusing to help industries in important areas related to science, technology and management pertaining to Pollution, Energy Efficiency, Bio-Energy & Waste to Energy and enable the integration of innovative need-based technologies.

GERMI’s renewable energy research and development group is focused on doing fundamental and applied research for supporting the society, industry and government.
