Students took an active part in the discussion and Dr Seema Bawa declared at the end of the session that Thapar Unviersity will immediately take steps to install solar power plants and also initiate efforts for biogas. She said, even if there is a remote risk of nuclear accident which can endanger human life, flora and fauna, we must strive hard to use technologies that are 100% safe. In view of the fact that Co2 levels have reached 400ppm and freak weather conditions are increasing in intensity and frequency. It was unanimously resolved that we should use solar, wind and bio energy in order to set up a Thapar Model of Energy Generation and Consumption so as to serve as a role model to society.
