Title: Concentrated Parabolic Solar Cookers for Quantity Cooking
Date: July 2006 (presented at the Granada solar cooking conference)
Abstract: Several scientists have pointed out the relevance of alternate renewable sources of energy for combating the "Energy Crisis". Among the renewable sources of energy, solar energy offers a practical solution for the energy problem which is clouding the prospects of mankind. Much of solar energy research in India is concentrated towards developing solar cookers for domestic use.
In this context we should concentrate our thoughts on utilizing solar energy for the cooking requirements at the large scale establishments for better future and energy security. For facilitating the quantity cookery in large establishments, CPSC are among the convenient, cost effective and operationally viable devices. In order to iron out all the queries such as the availability, cost/benefit ratio, the mode of installation, and the financial support given by the Government for installation, an explorative research study has been undertaken at Brahma Kumari Ashram at Mount Abu and Tirupathi Devasthanam at Andhra Pradesh, where the world’s largest CPSC systems have been installed. The findings of this study bring forth the importance of the CPSC for quantity cookery that could be one of the emerging ventures for meeting the energy demands of the country.
Key words: Energy crisis, Fossil fuels, Renewable energy, Solar energy, Concentrated Parabolic Solar Cooker Quantity cookery
