Electricity can be a clean and green source of heat! 

Industrial process heating consumes a lot of energy. Of this heat, the low-grade variety (typically < 120 C) is about 3737 kToe (Kilo-tonne of oil equivalent) which is about Rs. 18,400 Crore (US$ 2.8 Billion) annually. Of this, the top 3 consumers are Automotive and ancillaries, Food processing and Textiles, accounting for 44%. While textile and food processing use a mix of input fuels to cater to …

Is GST making solar heating more attractive for 2017, 2018?

Preliminary investigations suggest a categorical yes!   Let us understand this better:   With the new GST rules, the GST paid is not part of the capital cost of the system installed.  In the earlier regime, we could not claim the credit of the GST or the Sales Tax paid because there was a segregation …

Does “heat pump” double electrical energy?

Does “heat pump” double electrical energy? Dugna? Ottikku retti? Ponzi scheme? Claims of one unit (KWHr) of electricity producing 2 units of cooling and 3 units of heat – getting the useful energy of 4-5 times – how does this work? Is it defying laws of physics? The law of conservation of energy: Energy cannot …

Heat Pump and Solar Thermal Systems – Decarbonising our energy systems

Our energy system is extraordinarily carbon intensive, and highly polluting. Consider this. In 2013, only 3% of India’s primary energy demand (both electricity and thermal energy) was met by non-carbon sources (predominantly nuclear and renewables that does not include biomass) (Source : International Energy Agency). Fossil fuels account for 73% of the total source of …

Too Good To Be True – Heat Pump Case Study

“Too Good to be True” – That was the reaction of a leading global Trucks Manufacturer, when Aspiration Energy told that replacement of Electric Heaters with Heat Pump will reduce more than 50% of energy consumption for one of its Industrial processes. The Truck Manufacturer was skeptical about Heat Pumps and challenged Aspiration Energy to …
