Auroville

DESCRIPTION

Auroville is a universal township in making. Founded in 1968 it is endorsed by UNESCO and the Government of India, it offers a unique field for developing innovative solutions for some of the pressing needs of our time. It is home to multi-national and multi-cultural population from about 50 countries. Auroville also has a strong background in sustainability related area, innovation and appropriate technology application in the context of a developing nation. Auroville has been a pioneer in the deployment of renewable energy technologies. With the combined renewable energy generation of on-site solar PV systems and the off-site wind turbines, it generates about 30% more renewable energy than it consumes. Since 2014 Auroville has been developing its own underground electricity grid. A next logical step is to scale up distributed renewable energy generation and to add grid-balancing technologies.
