Training & Capacity Building

At the annual meeting of the World LP Gas Association in Berlin, Germany on 28-29 September, IIEC presented case studies of ongoing work and testing of LPG-solar thermal hybrids in India and South Africa. IIEC President Dr. Nitin Pandit described how the hybrid technology was an innovative approach to differing motivations in the two cases: in India, it is being driven by DSM programs for the unbundled distribution utility in Bangalore; and in South Africa, it is motivated by environmental health issues in Orange Farm. He also noted that the technical improvements in the hybrid system were characterized by simplicity and a novel design methodology.
