China Glass NetworkToday in Mumbai, the Intersolar Award for the solar projects in India category was presented for the first time atIntersolar India.

Clique Developments won the industrial and commercial use award for its solar-operated air-conditioning system in the Indian town of Greater Noida, which was integrated into an existing power supply system.

The solar heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system is operated by National Thermal Power (NTPC), New Delhi, and saves around 1,000kWh of power daily compared to the original system for cooling alone. With a reflector area totaling 169 square meters and a cold-water tank with a capacity of 550 cubic meters, this is the first and largest project of its kind in India, according to Intersolar India.

The jury was impressed by the long-term storage capacity and autonomy of the system. Thanks to the cold water tank, the system can work for up to two days without insolation, thus reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

The Intersolar Award for utility scale projects went to the Gujurat Power Corporation for its Gujurat Solar Park project. The government of Gujurat commissioned the major construction project to reduce CO2 emissions within the region.

According to the project plans, solar installations with a cumulative capacity of 500MW will be erected on an area totaling 20.24 square kilometers. This will supply more than 100,000 India households with power in the future, and should generate savings of up to 342,400 metric tons of CO2 per year.

A second prize for industrial and commercial use projects was awarded to SunCarrier Omega for its Omega Net-Zero Energy Building project (pictured) in the village of Charanka, Patan District, Gujurat.

A 67kW PV installation with additional battery storage systems, this project is suited to ensuring stable power supply in urban areas, as power outages often occur here. Three Cellcube FB 10-100 units, each with a storage capacity of 300kWh, balance out these electricity shortages. In the jury’s view, this solution is ground-breaking as the system has a stabilizing effect on the power grid and ensures increased energy security.

A total of eight projects were nominated for the new Intersolar Award category in early October 2012. An independent jury composed of experts from research, science, and industry selected the three projects from the group of nominated companies.
