This is a document provided by Mr. Shirish Garud and Dr. Ishan Purohit, research associates within the Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), New Delhi, India, which proposes an economic and environment evaluation of Indiaâs solar thermal potential.
After a brief presentation of Indiaâs power scenarios, the authors pass in review some solar thermal power generation technologies, like parabolic trough system, power tower system or parabolic dish systems.
The solar thermal power programme of India is the main element for the development of opportunities for solar thermal power generation in India and the authors try to identify the principal barriers and ways to go ahead in this domain. As conclusion, according to the authors, solar energy based power generating systems can play a major role towards the fulfillment of Indian industry energy requirements.
