During the agreement signing event, Ivaan Foundation and Rishabh Instruments limited, managing director and chairman, Narendra Goliya said: "I am very happy to announce that we are establishing a Centre for Research and Innovation in Clean Energy, with an aim to develop new technologies that will promise a cleaner future for India and the entire world. We found a very competent partner in IIT Jodhpur that has similar objectives. The centre will be built and managed on the premises of IIT Jodhpur over the next three years."
He further added, " IIT Jodhpur has young and committed faculties who are willing to work with scholars in the new technology areas for which there is an acute need in this world. The countries with sufficient energy are either not competitive in cost and reliability or are polluting and riddled with transmission and distribution losses. Academia will also ensure that most of the technologies they develop have commercial applications and usage, which will be put to appropriate ventures to ensure that the researchers and faculties at IIT Jodhpur are incentivized to put them to commercial use. With leadership from IIT Jodhpur and Rishabh Instruments, we are sure the centre will fulfil its stated objectives and motivate other industries to set up such research centres."
