A workshop here on efficacy in energy conservation has underscored the need to adopt micro-level energy- saving initiatives and tap non-conventional solar power to meet the mounting energy requirements in future.
The workshop, hosted on the sidelines of the Kisan Mela and agri-business exhibition hosted by the Central Plantation Crops Research Institute (CPCRI) here recently, pointed out that Kerala which has medium day-time temperature has immense scope to explore options to tap solar energy.
The conducive atmosphere for the State to go in for solar power generation stems from the fact that solar panels are found to have achieved optimal efficiency when day-time temperature hovers in the range of 25 to 30 degree celsius, P.V.C. Nambiar, Technical Resource Persons at the Agency for Non-conventional Energy and Rural Technology (ANERT) here said, handling classes at the workshop.
The ANERT has come out with a series of products such as solar lantern, biogas plant, solar home lighting system and water heater, he said. About 350 households had evinced interest in tapping solar energy by placing the roof-top panels.
