Germany to close all nuclear plants by 2022: Dr Bassam

The students of Haryana will be benefited in their research work on energy as a private institue in Hisar has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Germany's International Research Center for Renewable Energy (IRCREG).

Chairman of the institute CP Gupta and IRCREG Director N El Bassam exchanged papers of the agreement on 'Research for renewable sources of energy' here yesterday.

Speaking on the occasion Dr Bassam said, "Indian sub-continent has vast scope to develop sources of renewable energy, specially by tapping the solar power. On an average, sunshine is available for 320 days in India in one year, and if put to use properly, there would be no shortage of energy in the country. Our institute would provide all kinds of help to the students of Haryana in the research on solar power."

He said by 2022 all nuclear plants in Germany would be wound up. "We should use alternative energy sources like ocean waves on shores, air power in hills and organic waste wherever it is available. The nuclear power is dangerous, risky, costly and time consuming. The nuclear waste is not easy to be dumped.

The incidents of Japan are a lesson for the world. Therefore, the coming age belongs to renewable energy sources for sustainable life on the planet," Dr Bassam added.

Dr Gupta while thanking Dr Bassam said, "This agreement would go a long way in improving the renewable power generation sources in Haryana," and added that the institute would soon hold a joint seminar with IRCREG.
