Mitigation actions

Installation of 159 dish type solar cookers.
It is concentrating type parabolic dish solar cooker with aperture disameter of 1.4 meter and focal length 0.28 meter. The reflecting material used for fabrication of this cooker is anodized aluminum sheet which has a reflectivity of over 75%. The tracking of the cooker is manual and thus has to be adjusted in 15-20 minutes during cooking time. It has a delivering power of about 0.6 KW which can boil 2 t0 3 liters of water in half an hour. The temperature achieved at the bottom of the vessel could be around 350 to 400 c which is sufficient for roasting, frying and boiling. The cooker having a thermal efficiency of around 40% can meet the needs of 10 to 15 people and can be used from on to 15 people and can be used from one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset on clear days. Dish solar cooker is being fabricated and promoted in the country by a few manufacturers/suppliers. The cooker can be easily dismantled and assembled by anybody and thus may be nicely packed and transported anywhere in the country. The cooker is user friendly as the place of vessel to be kept for cooking is at a level which is convenient for the people to use. The cooker could be useful for individuals in rural as well as urban areas and also for small establishments like dhabas, tea shops, etc. on road sides. The cost of the cooker is Rs 8800/- and the Central subsidy is Rs. 5,280/-, it can save up to 10 LPG cylinders/year on full use at small establishments. Start year 2012

Power generation by use of bio gas at three location in the city with a cumulative capacity of 120 m3
Biogas based power units can be a reliable decentralized power generation option in the country. In order to promote this route of power generation, specifically in the small capacity range (3 kW to 250 kW), based on the availability of large quantity of animal wastes and wastes from forestry, rural based industries (agro/food processing), kitchen wastes, etc; a number of projects of different capacities and applications will be taken up for refining the technical knowhow, developing manpower and necessary infrastructure, establishing a proper arrangement of operation & maintenance and large scale dissemination. The projects to be taken up by any village level organization, institution, private entrepreneurs etc. in rural areas as well as areas covered under the Remote Village Electrification (RVE) programme of MNRE other than the industries and commercialestablishments covered under Urban, Industrial & Commercial Applications (UICA) programmes for sale of electricity to individual/community on mutually agreeable terms. The implementing organizations must ensure that sufficient feed stock/ materials for proposed biogas plants size are available on sustainable basis and the beneficiary organization gives an undertaking that the plant would be maintained and operated for a minimum period of ten years Start year 2012
