To overcome the challenges of crop spoilage and high operating costs, solar cold storage are the most effective solution today. Crop spoilage in farms is a major obstacle that India faces. Erratic supply of electricity causes electricity-powered cold storages to remain inactive and storage conditions inside to not remain in the optimal range. On the… Read More »Solar Cold Storage: Green Energy Can Reduce Crop Wastage
It is well known that non-biodegradable plastic is choking planet Earth. A new technology has been developed to turn plastic waste into high-performance materials, in the form of tiles and blocks. These materials are weather-resistant, acid-proof, durable, offer better structural stability at a low cost and protect the environment from plastic dumping. This innovation is… Read More »Converting Waste Plastic Bags into Design Tiles
Around 4000 rooftop solar panels will charge the home furnishing major’s fleet of electric vehicles for delivery and run other store operations in Hyderabad. Swedish ready-to-assemble furniture and furnishing accessory giant IKEA inaugurated its first Indian store at Hyderabad last week with a massive response from locals. The multinational brand has started off its domestic… Read More »IKEA adopts solar and EV to power its India operations
Do you know that we are consuming natural resources at a much faster pace than we can possibly imagine? And that buildings make up for about forty per cent of the total demand for energy? Also, the fact that our buildings can be made in such a way that they are completely sustainable on their… Read More »Towards A Sustainable Future Driven By The Thrust of Organic, Flexible and Printable Solar Cells
Throughout the ages, yield from the farm has been majorly dependent on the manual effort put in by the agri community. External factors include weather, water supply and land condition. Introduction of automated equipment and sensorised devices for agriculture ensures that the yield keeps improving, even if other factors are not favourable. We look into… Read More »Automation: The Holy Grail Of Modern Agriculture
“People don’t want to do that (build houses or offices) near a nuclear power plant. So, there’s quite a big keep-out zone, and when you factor the keep-out zone into account, the solar panels put on that area would typically generate more power than that nuclear power plant.” —Elon Musk India is moving full throttle on… Read More »Solar Roadways: Feasible For India?
Founded by Kushagra Srivastava, Arpit Dhupar and Prateek Sachan, Chakr Innovation has devised a novel technology to capture particulate matter from diesel generators (DGs) without adversely impacting the engine’s performance or the environment. Moreover, they do not just dump or burn off the captured carbon. As carbon is a useful resource, they process the captured… Read More »Ink From DG Sets
Solar pumps have driven the Agri community towards uninterrupted high-yield farming. By replacing conventional diesel-driven pumps with solar pumps, farmers in rural parts of India have been able to triple their income. Government subsidies and private fundings are helping the farms improve for the better. How it works Solar pumps are especially useful for areas… Read More »Solar Pumps: Renewable Energy For Better Agriculture
Solar energy is the stepping stone towards a green and economical urban ecosystem. Municipalities are turning to solar-powered LED streetlights as a future-proof lighting option. Professor (Dr) Santi Pada Gonchaudhuri, former managing director at West Bengal Green Energy Development Corporation Limited (WBGEDCL), and an expert in the renewable community, drove a solar streetlight installation project… Read More »Solar case study: How Kolkata Municipality benefited from solar streetlights
The call for energy-efficiency has been stronger than ever, and states like Delhi are steering the drive right from the streets. AC mains-driven LED streetlights are great as low-cost power savers. On the other hand, those who intend to move away from drawing grid power altogether, should consider investing in solar LED streetlights. There are… Read More »Streetlighting: Should States Invest In Solar?
