Duties and Responsibilities

The overall goal of this GEF-UNDP-MNRE project is the reduction of GHG emissions from low and medium temperature process heat applications in India through the use of CSH systems. The project objective is increased use and promotion of CSH systems for low and medium temperature process heat applications, which was envisaged to be achieved by the integrated removal of the key barriers that prevent the wider adoption of CSH technologies in India. The project was designed so as to complement the ongoing effort of MNRE to promote the use of Solar Concentrators for process heat applications by overcoming various identified existing barriers (in technology, awareness, capacity, market and financial) so as to enable it to position the Indian CSH industry for further on-going sustained growth after the end of this project. The main objective was to increase the use and promotion of CSH systems for low and medium temperature process heat applications.
