CSIR-CMERI Solar DC Cooking System- Key Facts

CSIR-CMERI has handed over the “CSIR-CMERI developed Solar DC Cooking System” to Asansol Braille Academy in West Bengal on September 22, 2021.

CSIR-CMERI developed Solar DC Cooking System

  • This Solar DC Cooking System is a “Solar Energy based Cooking System” that comprises of solar PV panel, battery bank, charge controller and cooking oven.
  • Technology provides a Clean Cooking Environment, fast & uniform heating and Invertor-Less Direct Operation.
  • It has a potential to save 1 ton Carbon Dioxide emissions per year per household.
  • This system has 20-25% better efficiency and more Economical as compared to the Conventional Solar based Cooking Systems that loses efficiency owing to AC-DC conversion.
  • Simple Technology Design also ensures Ease-of-Manufacturing and ultimately provides substantial Economic Opportunity for the Micro-Industries.

Significance of the system

Solar DC cooking System will help in curbing the Carbon Dioxide emissions, because even LPG usage emits Carbon Dioxide. Widespread usage of the System will also play a critical role in achieving the target of 200 GW of Solar energy.

Cost of the system

The Technology after reaching to the market will cost around Rs 65,000 to Rs 70,000.
