RE+: renewables beyond electricity

An awareness of the potential of renewables beyond power-generation, particularly for heating, cooling, cooking and mechanical applications would greatly enhance their acceptance amongst the public, according to a report released by WWF-India and the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) at WWF-India, New Delhi. RE+: Renewables Beyond Electricity is a compendium of innovative renewable energy applications beyond electricity generation. The fourteen renewable energy applications documented in this report cover four different renewable energy sources - biomass, wind, geothermal, and solar - in a variety of renewable energy applications like improved biomass cook stoves, solar space heating and cooling systems, solar photovoltaic water pumps, solar pasteurizers, solar desalinators and wind water pumps, among others in operation across the country.
