Solar Concentrated Heating System at the Ramakrishna Mission’s Students’ Home in Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Vinod Kumar, an employee checks the steam pressure of the solar energy-based steam generator, ARUN®100 from Clique Solar, at the Ramakrishna Mission’s Students’ Home, in Mylapore, Chennai. The steam generator is designed to capture the maximum heat from the sun and use it to continuously turn water into steam. The steam is used to cook 120 kilos of rice per meal and provide approximately 3,000 meals to 700 students every day. The project is supported by UNDP and Government of India to encourage wider spread of the technology. Over the next three years, the project aims to install 45,000 square metres of concentrated solar technology-based systems across India, saving 39,200 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions and 3.15 million litres of fuel oil each year.
