This presentation provided by Rangan Banerjee, from the Department of Energy Science and Engineering of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Bombay, draws a panorama of solar thermal energy and storage technologies. After a brief presentation of various green energies and several end uses and technologies, the author focuses on solar thermal energy, especially on passive solar.
Solar cooking is a main point of this analysis and various technologies can be used for it, according to the author. A list of diverse approved research projects and a status evaluation of its parameters is also available.
Various graphics present several models for estimation of potential target area for developing solar thermal energy in India, like academic programmes, sponsored students, sponsored projects or labs, but also the concept and the main objectives ahead of India policy of solar thermal.
