Areas of expertise

  • Renewable Energy


Kapil is currently working as a research associate in the School of Water, Energy and Environment since Dec 2021. He did his Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Technology, Ropar (India) in 2021 where he worked on volumetric absorption solar collector driven HDH desalination process. He completed his B.E. in Mechanical Engineering from Chitkara University, Punjab (India) in 2015. 

Research opportunities

His research interest is thermal desalination processes such as MED, HDH and MD specially driven by the low-grade heat produced available from geothermal, solar, waste etc. 

Current activities

He is currently working on an EU H2020 project called REWAISE (Resilient water innovation for smart economy) in which the objective is to design and engineer a low-cost, low-energy and carbon-neutral thermal desalination facility to produce 200 m3 per day of fresh water for Tenerife Island.
