Solar Water Heaters – An introduction

Solar Water Heaters as the name suggests are used to heat water through solar energy. The solar water heater taps the sun’s heat and uses it to heat the water. Working Principle Solar water heaters works on the principle of thermosiphon. Cold water usually have higher density and stays at the bottom of any container. When the water is heated, the temperature rises and the density becomes lesser. As the density becomes lesser, the hot water moves to the top of the container. This is the principle of thermosiphon. The…

Energy and environmental lessons from anti Sterlite protests

The copper smelter plant of Vedanta Limited, Sterlite at Thoothukudi, has been embroiled in controversy ever since it tried to start operations. After being rejected, from three states, finally it got approval from the Government of Tamil Nadu in 1994. The people have protested ever since the start and had intensified the protest in the last three months. The peaceful protest on its 100th day turned violent leading to death of 13 innocent people and several injured and arrested. Normal life was disturbed and there were reports that people were…

Solar Drier – An Introduction

Drying is widely used across industries for various applications, though the basic application is to remove water from the particle. For instance in food processing industry, apart from for the want of removing water, drying is used to inhibit the growth of substances such as bacteria, yeast, etc. It is also used to preserve food particles. In case of rubber, drying is used to harden the rubber whereas in the leather industry, drying is employed to remove water from the leather so that the growth of bacteria and other micro…

How to choose the right solar power plant capacity

Solar photo voltaic power plants have become a common occurrence today and many companies are interested in setting up a solar power plant at their premises. Solar photo voltaic power plants generate clean and green energy by exposing silicon made solar panels to sunlight. The solar photo voltaic power plant consists of solar panels to convert sunlight in to DC power which is converted in to AC power via an inverter. Before deciding on the solar power plant installation capacity, there are certain parameters that are to be understood so…

Heat Pumps – An introduction

Heat Pumps as the name suggests, is  a heating device that transfers heat from the source of heat to heat sink. Heat sink transfers the heat generated to a fluid medium. In a way, heat sink is a passive heat exchanger. Naturally, as is the case with any energy transmission, heat energy travels from a hot area to colder area. But with the aid of heat pumps, the heat from a cold surface can be absorbed and transferred to a warmer surface, making the warming the warmer surface hot. In…

The journey of Energy Efficiency in Ceiling Fans

Ceiling Fans are one of the most widely used appliances in India. India, being a tropical country is usually hot or warm for most part of  a year. It is estimated that there are around 400 million fans in India running for around 7 hours a day. The average power consumption is understood to be around 40W considering the various speed levels that may be used. This translates to around 1,12,000 MU being consumed everyday leaving a huge potential for energy efficiency. The energy efficiency in fans have come a…
