INDIA / India Projects Program
Rural villages in the Mandi District lack effective methods to heat homes during the winter. Throughout this project, we evaluated current heating techniques and conducted preliminary tests of a new heating method utilizing packed bed thermal energy storage technology. Through our research, we determined that packed bed technology is not the solution to heating in the Mandi District; however, it could be applicable in colder climates. We recommended investigating alternative heating technology for the Mandi District.
