Solar Concentrated Heating System at the Ramakrishna Mission’s Students’ Home in Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Students eat lunch cooked with the steam generated from ARUN®100, a solar energy-based steam generator at the Ramakrishna Mission’s Students’ Home in Mylapore, Chennai. The UNDP and Government of India partnership is providing support to institutions such as the RK Mission Home to encourage wider spread use of the technology. Over the last two years, the rate of installation of such solar concentrated heating systems has more than doubled. Over the next three years, the project aims to install 45,000 square metres of concentrated solar technology-based systems across India, saving 39,200 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions saving 3.15 million litres of fuel oil each year.
