India is full of sun energy. Technologies developed on use of this energy can help saving the fossil fuels in industrial, commercial and institutional establishments for various applications. A huge amount of fossil fuels especially the electricity and fuel oil are being consumed for thermal applications e.g. water/air heating, community cooking, process heat, space cooling etc. At most places the heat requirement in the form of steam/pressurized hot water/ air or oil is between 90 to 350 C. Industrial sector is the major sector which require such heat for various processes.
The project goal is to reduce GHG emissions from low and medium temperature process heat applications in India through the use of CSH systems. The objective is to increase the use and promotion of CSH systems for low and medium temperature process heat applications. This will be achieved by the integrated removal of the key barriers that prevent the wider adoption of CSH technologies in India.
