India is yet to capitalise on its potential to tap energy from biomass and to achieve it networking of expertise is needed, said K Ramasamy, Vice-Chancellor, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University in the city on Saturday.
Addressing the annual G B Joshi Memorial lecture at Agharkar Research Institute (ARI) Ramasamy said, "India has the expertise to use biomass as an alternative source of energy but the question is how? Networking the expertise will be the key."
Kalyan Banerjee, President MACS (Maharashtra Association for the Cultivation of Science) and DR Ranade, Officiating Director, ARI were present.
"Sharing of expertise is the need of the hour. This, unfortunately, is not happening," added Ramasamy.
