India: New Solar-Biomass Cold Storage and Power Generation System

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on July 30, 2012

One of the leading solar solution providers in India, Thermax, has just implemented a so-called solar-biomass hybrid demonstration project at the Solar Energy Centre in northern India. The cold storage and power generation system is the first of its kind worldwide. It comprises of a 15 kW (~5 tons of refrigeration) Thermax Vapour Absorption Machine (VAM), coupled with a field of Thermax SolPac D160 solar thermal tracking concentrators, as well as a 50kWel biomass gasifier system. The VAM uses both the heat energy from the solar parabolic concentrators and the waste heat from the biomass gasifier to cool the storage chamber.
