Active Solar Heating System: a viable solution for Ladakh region   2015

"The Ladakh Region of India witnesses a temperature of (+30ºC) during summers (April – September) and a temperature of (-40ºC) during winters (October – March). To overcome such situations the inhabitants of the region utilise several options for heating the living space including burning of fossil fuel, cow dung or woods inside the house to provide sufficient warmth during the days. Such act also leads to the release of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere and also exposes the inhabitants to problems related to lungs and breathing. The replacement of burning fossil fuel with active solar heating systems of appropriate size is a pertinent solution. It employs utilisation of energy available from sun to heat the living space. The entire process is free from the release of gases which are harmful to humans."

Project jointly initiated by Government of India, Government of Federal Germany, and Ladakh Ecological Development Group (LEDeG).
