Title: Sustainable Energy Systems Design for a Tribal Village in India
The objective of this P3 project is to sustainably meet the energy needs of Trishul, a tribal village in Maharashtra, India, by using locally available materials, integrating different renewable energy systems, and designing environmentally benign, and locally appropriate, energy-storage options. The energy technologies designed through this effort (i.e., small wind turbines, anaerobic digesters, solar cookers, and efficient stoves) will be applicable to developing communities that lack electrical services.
