Abstract

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.
