To facilitate the development of indigenous technology and capability through continuous experimentation and research.
To obtain and document experience in relation to running and maintenance of a solar thermal power plant.
To enable R&D towards the possible cost reductions in the development of components of a solar thermal plant.
Development of a solar power plant simulator that will enable the simulation of different scenarios in solar thermal power generation and also for the purpose of simulating scaling up of plants.
The objective of the project is the establishment of a national test facility that will enable the testing of components and systems of solar thermal power generation.
