Start-up Challenge – Solar Chulha.

Solar Chulha Challenge

Background

ONGC announced a Rs 100 crore Start-up fund on its 60th foundation day, i.e. on 14th August 2016 to foster, nurture and incubate new ideas related to energy sector. The initiative, christened as ‘ONGC Start-up Fund’, is in line with the ‘Start-up India’ initiative launched by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India on January 16, 2016.

‘ONGC Start-up Fund’ shall cater to start-ups in the “Energy Sector” and will provide the entire support chain including seed capital, hand-holding, mentoring, market linkage and follow-ups. The aim of ‘ONGC Start-up Fund’ is to increase the contribution of fresh implementable ideas in the oil and gas sector by creating an ecosystem that is conducive for promoting innovation and growth of the startups.

On the occasion of Pd. Deendayal Upadhyay’s birth anniversary on 25th September 2017, Hon’ble Prime Minister has exhorted ONGC to take up a challenge to work towards making an “efficient electric chulha (stove)”, which would enable cooking using the solar power (the text of the Ho’ble PM speech is placed at Annex. 1). Inspired by the words of Honble Prime Minister, ONGC is launching a public innovation challenge to seek innovative solutions for development of Solar Chulha.

Need for a Solar Chulha

About 700 million people in India live in households that cook every day with simple chulhas using locally gathered biomass for fuel. This results in substantial air pollution exposures in and around the households but is also an important contributor to outdoor air pollution- estimated to be responsible for more than 25% of the country’s outdoor air pollution. These exposures are estimate to result in the premature death of more than 8 lakh Indians each year, with the greatest risk for women and young children. In addition, gathering biomass fuel often requires many hours per week that could be put to more productive activities and in some parts of the country contributes to land degradation and deforestation.

Approaches to clean household cooking are thus urgently needed to supplement the promotion of LPG now occurring nationally so that everyone can benefit. Fully extending grid electrification, as is planned by the GOI, offers one option in conjunction with solar supplementation to avoid stress on the grid from cooking, which occurs daily at the same time in most communities. This can only happen, however, if appropriate solar-powered electric cook stoves with battery support can be developed. They can be used in a stand- alone form if no grid electricity is available, or in a hybrid form to supplement power coming through electrification schemes.
Solar cooking involves converting and controlling the sun’s heat and light energy on site to cook food. Being clean and not requiring the gathering or purchase of fuel, solar energy also has the attractions of being renewable and locally available. The main disadvantage of past solar cooking techniques is that they have no ability to store energy and most households are not able or willing to cook when the sun is high in the sky, when the devices can provide sufficient power for important cooking tasks. Solar energy storage in the form of steam or hot oil is used for institutional cooking in India, for example in ashrams or schools, but is too expensive and complex for households.

ONGC Innovation Challenge – Solar Chulha

ONGC is organising a challenge to develop at reasonable cost an effective and versatile solar-powered stove system that

  • Cooks both at night and during the day,
  • Can be used for all cooking processes (boiling, steaming, frying),
  • Is safe and easy to use,
  • Is built with materials that are available easily and can be disposed of safely,
  • Can be mass produced to achieve good quality control and economies of scale, and
  • Can be used independently or in conjunction with some power from the grid.

The deliverables and boundary conditions of the proposed challenge are as follows:


Description of the Solar Chulha Challenge

ONGC invites Entrepreneurs/Scientists/Researchers (as individuals or in groups) with interest in innovation, to participate in the Indigenous Development effort on Design, Development and Demonstration of Solar Chulha, suitable for indoor cooking of Indian food (including frying, baking and chapati making).

1. The broad performance features expected from Solar Chula among other things include:

  • Solar Chulha should work on solar energy (solar thermal or PV) or any other renewable energy as source of energy which can be easily accessed or made available in any house hold kitchen.
  • It should be possible to keep the chulha all time inside the kitchen for cooking purposes (including frying, baking and chapati making), similar to traditional commercially available cook stoves which work on LPG or other fuels.
  • It should be possible to use the Solar chulha on need basis any time during the day/night (24X7) basis.
  • It should be suitable for built up of materials which are easily available and can be disposed safely and can be mass produced with economies of scale.
