DEE harbours an NABL accredited calibration lab and ISO 9001:2008 certified state-of-the-art laboratories equipped with sophisticated instruments and software, with the objective of catering to academic and industrial research needs. DEE aids high-spirited research and teaching in the areas of sustainable energy technologies, environmental pollution control, energy and environmental audit. The faculty members are trained at various UK universities such as University of Salford, UMIST, De Montfort, Sheffield, Reading, Leeds and Building Research Establishment. The time of the department is shared equally between academics, research and consultancy activities. The consultancy services offered include solid and liquid testing, calibration and energy auditing of industries and academic institutes. The department is committed to convert its research outcomes into a real time technology transfer to the society and industry where it meets out its ultimate objective.
