Venue: Hall Mordor, A GRID building, Aalto University, Otakaari 5, Espoo

Organized jointly by INSIC and the Aalto University Sustainability Hub.

Join us to meet and discuss with representatives of five key Indian 
Science and Technology Ministry’s core support groups visiting Aalto 
University to build dialogue on new energy systems and solar energy at 
large. Lal Singh HRG (Himalayan Research Group), Professor Santi Pada 
Gonchaudhury from NBIRT (Nath Bose Instutute for Rural Technologies), 
Rakesh Kumar from HESCO, Yogesh Kulkarni Vigyan Ashram and Reghu Rama 
Das from Mitraniketan are here to create dialogue with Aalto research 
and collaboration in Finland for International Solar Alliance.

Free entry, but please register at: 


14.15 – 14.30 Get together with coffee

14.30 – 15.30 Solving the Storage Problem, what to do with the extra 
solar power generated at midday?

The storage problem is still the greatest bottleneck on the way towards 
a 100 per cent renewable energy system.  How much can be done by new, 
intelligent super-grids and/or by adjusting our production systems and 
other energy consumption to the solar age?  What is the ideal balance 
between energy harvesting and storage? What will be the cheapest ways to 
store the power that needs to be stored?

Professor S.P. Gonchaudhury: Converting existing hydropower plants and 
reservoirs to pumped-storage hydropower; a way to solve a major part of 
the storage problem?

Professor Peter Lund: Optimum interplay between PV and energy storage

Professor Annukka Santasalo-Aarnio:  New trends in energy storage and 

David Brown, CEO, Broadbit Batteries (uncertain): The promise and 
potential of sodium batteries

15.30 – 16.15: Clean cooking energy for the billions

400 million families are still cooking their food with traditional 
cookers burning biomass in a very polluting way.  Accoridng to the World 
Health Organization the small particle emissions from these traditional 
biomass cookers annually cause 4.3 million premature deaths, besides 
which they also contribute to global warming the melting of Himalayan 
glaciers.  Emissions can be reduced by more than one hundred times by 
better design and equipping the biomass cookers with tiny electric fans, 
but how to power the fans in houses that have no grid connection? The 
batteries and solar panels of micro-solar domes are an obvious 
alternative, but are there other possibilities, besides them?

Ninad Mutatkari, Fortum: Solar(2)Go, buying and selling tiny amounts of 
power by mobile phone applications

Pasi Ylirisku and Tommi Vahtera:  The possibilities and limitations of 
new biomass- (or solar-) heated thermo-electric generators (TEGs)

16.15-16.45 Coffee break

16.45 – 18.00 Emerging trends and exciting new solar energy innovations

What are the most interesting, game-changing and revolutionary recent 
solar energy innovations? What are the most important areas in which new 
and better solar innovations and techniques are still desperately needed?

Dr Salla Puupponen, Kemira and Aalto University: Novel phase change 
material composition for heat change and storage applications

Dr Syed Ghufran Hashmi: Cheap, printable perovskite solar cells: the 
future of solar power?

Dr Kati Miettunen: Solar energy and materials in the device life cycle

Risto Isomäki: The urgent need for more ecological and climate-friendly 
air conditioning methods: what kind of things have been proposed, this far?

Wednesday 17 October


Venue:*Kansalaisinfo (Visitor's Centre) of the Finnish Parliament, 
Arkadiankatu 3, Helsinki*

Will our global future be powered by the Sun? What is happening in the 
field of solar energy in Finland, Europe, India and elsewhere? Can the 
new and affordable solar technologies coming from India also benefit the 
world's two billion poorest people?


Opening words by Mr Kimmo Tiilikainen, the Finnish Minister for Environment

Address by Ms Vani Rao, the Ambassador of India to Finland

Ms Satu Hassi, Member of the Finnish Parliament: "The (renewable) energy 
policies of the European Union"

Professor S.P. Gonchaudhury, Nath Bose Institute for Rural Technologies 
(NBIRT): "Indian Solar Mission, ISA and InSIC: what is happening in the 
field of solar energy in India?"

Comments by Dr Sunil Agarwal, Department of Science and Technology, 
Government of India, and Ms *Hanna Sarkkinen*, Member of the Finnish 
Parliament (tbc)
