Until now, solar thermal (specifically medium temperature solar thermal) has played second fiddle to solar PV in terms of growth. Going forward however, EAI foresees significant growth potential for the use of solar energy for medium temperature heating/drying/cooling applications in a range of industrial sectors. EAI has worked on a range of assignments in both low-temperature and medium-temperature solar thermal, and can assist your company adopt this emerging source of sustainable energy to offset use of fossil fuels such as furnace oil, LPG, and diesel.
EAI’s assistance to a milk cooperative proved critical in their decision making on incorporating solar water heaters and concentrating solar thermal in efforts to reduce their overall energy costs and to reduce their use of furnace oil.
Assisting Industrial Consumers Incorporate Solar Thermal in their Energy Mix – With both low-temperature (aka solar water heaters) and medium-temperature (concentrating solar thermal) showing impressive technology advances, the time has come for many large industrial and commercial users of heat/thermal energy to explore the use of solar thermal for their heat energy needs. A number of manufacturing companies and process industries around India have already started benefitting from this trend. EAI can help you evaluate the best technologies and assist you with both the technical and economic feasibility of solar thermal being incorporated in your energy mix.
Market Entry for International Firms – With our in-depth understanding of the solar thermal market in India, we can provide specialised assistance to international solar thermal (both solar CSP and solar thermal) firms wishing to enter the Indian market. This assistance can be in terms of providing in-depth intelligence about the Indian solar thermal market, and assistance in setting up of their India operations.
