- First Rice Straw Power Plant A 10 MW power plant using surplus rice straw as fuel, the first project of its kind in the world, has been set up at Jalkheri (Punjab). It is a joint venture of the department of non-conventional energy sources, Punjab State Electricity Board and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited. The Plant became operational from November 1992.
- Ocean Waves Energy Project India’s first ocean eaves energy project was launched in 1991 at Vizhinjam near Thiruvananthapuram. It is implemented jointly by Ocean Engineering Centre, IIT Madras and State Harbour Engineering Department. It is claimed that the wave energy unit is the first of its kind in the world because it is a multipurpose project and floats on the seabed. As power generation depends on the in exhaustible ocean waves, it is possible to generate power throughout the year.
- Pokhran Tests On May 18, 1974, India had conducted a peaceful underground nuclear experiment at Pokhran in Rajasthan desert. After a gap of 24 years, India has successful conducted 5 nuclear tests on May 11 & 13, 1998 at the Pokhran Range. The First three detonations took place simultaneously at 15:45 hrs IST on May 11, 1998. These included a thermonuclear device and a sub-kiloton device. The two nuclear devices, fired on May 13 at 12:21 hrs IST, were also sub-kiloton yield range. Many experiments were fielded for equation of state measurements and also calibration of ground and hydrodynamic yield measuring set ups.
