DET Logo

Established in 2010, the Deshpande Educational Trust (DET) strives to develop the human capital that powers enterprises and innovation. The Trust seeks to address the grave need for skilled and motivated employees and entrepreneurs in the next generation of community and economic development. DET programs impart leadership training and skill development training to charter a new path for local youth to experience entrepreneurship first hand, imbibing global standards of efficiency and excellence.

DET provides a holistic vibrant learning experience for youth. A prime example is the awe-inspiring Energy Park showcasing all types of renewable energy generation for training as well as an educational experience for the public. This spectacular park will be spread over 6,000 acres and includes solar, hydro, wind and biomass energy demonstration units, presenting the end-to-end process of power generation for the green economy.

With India setting a massive target of achieving 100 GW of solar power by 2022, DET has stepped in by training youth from 2nd and 3rd tier cities in installation and maintenance of utility scale as well as rooftop solar plants.
