Air conditioning is a major source of energy consumption with ambient temperatures reaching over 40°C in summer in most part of the country. Present cooling technologies are predominantly based on compression chillers which are driven by electricity from the grid. Due to losses in power generation and transmission, only 25 % of the primary energy used in a coal fired power plant reaches the end user. In comparison a cogeneration or Trigeneration system at the end users site, can reach overall efficiencies of 80%, as it can utilize the waste heat from power generation to cover the heating and cooling demand of the facility. In addition, there are no transmission losses. The benefits are even higher, since the decentralized cogeneration and Trigeneration units are lowering peak power demand. They even could provide costly peak power and reduce damaging power cuts in India if they are allowed to sell to the grid.
Most promising areas of Trigeneration application include hospitals, hotels, departmental stores, data centres, industries, air ports etc. Overall it is estimated that there are several thousand potential sites in India where Trigeneration could be applied economically within a range of 200 kWel to several MWel per installed system.
Trigen India is a platform to bring together:
1. State/Central government ministries & department
2. Users of electricity, heating and cooling (simultaneously)
3. Manufacturers and suppliers
4. Service providers
5. Energy Managers
6. Energy Auditors
11. Academic and research institutions
The website also provides a platform to bridge between national and international organizations, manufacturers and technology providers on Trigen and Cogen technology.
