The world is becoming increasingly toxic with lots of pollution and the over-utilisation of non-renewable resources. To this end, China is attempting a revolution with clean energy in the form of their Artificial Sun project, harnessing the sun’s renewable heat. Upon completion, it will prove to be a cornerstone in the field of science, one that will benefit all of mankind and its progeny.
Solar power is the future of power generation and harnessing it on the earth is not an easy task. This spurred scientists and researchers around the world to develop a revolutionary idea of setting up solar power stations in the earth’s orbit to harness this abundant source of energy.
A giant of the energy industry, a graduate of Harvard Business School, the President of Infrastructure, Defense, and Aerospace at Tata Sons—Banmali Agrawala has done it all. We at The Post were fortunate to get a short interview with Mr Banmali Agrawala as a part of The Manipal Conclave 2020, and this is what he had to say regarding technology, higher education, and the aerospace industry.
