India: First Stakeholder Workshop for Solar Thermal Roadmap

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 17, 2014
Greentech RoadmapWhereas India shows enormous demand for thermal energy in the industry and for cooking, solar thermal has so far only covered 0.2 % of the total heating and cooling need. Therefore it is urgent to scale up the use of decentralised solar thermal technologies. Supported by the Shakti Foundation, consultancy Greentech Knowledge Solutions (GKSPL), located in New Delhi, will prepare a roadmap for scaling up deployment of decentralised solar thermal technologies in India. With plans to publish the roadmap by October 2014, GKSPL organised the first stakeholder workshop in Pune at the end of April, gathering around 40 experts mainly from the solar thermal manufacturing business.

India: TERI Sets Targets for Large Buildings with GRIHA Label

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 5, 2013

The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a policy research organisation, has created a tool to measure and evaluate a building's environmental performance. The tool was developed in the context of India's varied climate and building practices, called Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA). GRIHA quantifies parameters, such as energy consumption, waste generation and renewable energy adoption, over the entire lifecycle of the building. The GRIHA housing label was first introduced in 2010, with the aim of incentivising the construction of cleaner and more sustainable buildings. In April 2013, TERI announced that it will aim at making government and private buildings totalling 15 million m2 of floor space compliant with GRIHA within three years.

India: HIMURJA as Inspirational Model for Market Development

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 9, 2012

The Himachal Pradesh Energy Development Agency (HIMURJA) has recently received the award  for the best state-based nodal agency in the areas of promotion and market development of solar water heaters from the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). The state of Himachal Pradesh in the north of India has so far achieved a collector area of 12,550 m2. Nearly 75% of these installations have been set up over the last 3 years. The region’s scenic and peaceful landscape makes it a popular tourist spot. Most of the territory is more than 1,000 meters above sea level and is covered by mountains. The photo shows the collector installation on the roof of the Apple Country Resort in Manali, Himachal Pradesh.

MNRE Congrats for Winners of UNDP GSWH Project

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on September 13, 2012

India has been one of the great beneficiaries of the Global Solar Water Heating Market Transformation and Strengthening Initiative (GSWH Project). The initiative, which was financed and implemented by the UN organisations UNDP/UNEP and GEF, has sought to speed up the growth of the solar water heater market around the globe. To reach its aim, the GSWH project has chosen a variety of options: generate demand, strengthen the supply chain, adopt quality measures and establish a supportive regulatory environment. The UNDP team has already pointed to India as the most successful example among the benefitting countries. To honour valuable contributions, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) organised a National Workshop on 23 August 2012 in New Delhi. At the workshop, the Energy Minister, Dr Farooq Abdullah, presented a total of thirteen awards to State Nodal Agencies, municipal corporations and Channel Partners. The GSWH project started in September 2008 and will end by December 2012.

India: Call for low-cost Solar Water Heaters in Himalayan Region

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 4, 2011

 Himalaya Map” The current use of Solar Water Heaters (SWHs) in India's Himalayan region remains rather limited, if not scarce. Including Jharkhand, the region's total installed collector area has been estimated at around 33,000 m2 until the end of 2010, which is less than 1% of the total installed SWH capacity in the country. Most of the existing systems are part of commercial and institutional buildings, whereas the domestic sector makes very little use of SWHs. These are some of the results of the study “Market assessment of solar water heating systems in the Himalayan Region” carried out by Greentech Knowledge Solutions on behalf of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

India: Largest Solar Thermal Process Heat Application

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 16, 2010

 240 collectors of an installation at the stapler and hole-punch manufacturer Kanin India” Solar process heat is becoming more and more popular in India: The photo shows the 240 collectors of an installation at the stapler and hole-punch manufacturer Kanin India. These panels heat a 60,000 litre electroplating bath in the city of Ludhiana, in the northernmost region of India. The temperature of the electroplating bath is to be maintained at 55 to 60 °C for 12 hours a day.
