Heating Device That Uses Renewable Energy In High Altitude Areas

Heating Device That Uses Renewable Energy In High Altitude Areas Heating Device That Uses Renewable Energy to the Rescue in High Altitude Areas

Hyderabad based WindStream Technologies, which offers hybrid solar and wind patented products, has joined hands with the Centre for Energy Research (CER) towards the establishment of a collaborative framework for the development, production, and promotion of a modular room heating device, Sustainable Excess Energy Generator (SEEGeN).  Designed with Super Metals, the product has applicability in areas with extreme cold, such as high-altitude shelters of soldiers. The device can be powered with solar energy, wind energy and solar-wind hybrid power.

The plant will soon be set up in Hyderabad or Bengaluru while the R&D facility will continue at CER.

The product can be customised as it can be modified, scaled up and mass produced depending on user requirements. It consists of super metals with Nickel in the form of fine mesh and Palladium in the nano form. Hydrogen gas is loaded onto it at very low pressure.

Boasting an efficiency of 130% to 150 %, the device promises an output of 130 W to 150 Watts of heat continuously on 24 x 7 basis. Further, it needs no expenditure on operation and maintenance as no refills are required. The temperature is consistently at 320 °C for a period of more than four months. Thus, it can help provide heat during the entire winter season.

Venkat Tangirala, CEO, WindStream Technologies, informs, “The power required for this device is very low, that is, 100W per 1 hour, which translates to 2.4 kW per device per day (24 hrs). The SolarMill, which offers storage, can generate power consistently from both wind and solar throughout the year.”

Since the device can function purely on renewable energy, the power costs incurred are nil. Adds Tangirala, “Most importantly, we avoid the use of fossil fuels that are being used today for generating heat in devices. The Return on Investment in SEEGeN is very lucrative.”


Meanwhile, the research continues at the Centre for Energy Research, S-VYAS, Bengaluru, under the guidance and leadership of Director, Centre of Energy and prominent missile scientist, Dr Prahlada Ramarao (Padma Shri 2015).

Concludes Tangirala, “The team at CER was successful in proving the concept and has been reviewed by several scientists from BARC, IITs, DRDO, DRDL, University of Bangalore and University of Dharwad. Subsequently, the team at CER continued the research and has developed a number of generators generating excess heat with an efficiency of 150% continuously for more than three months. Additionally, it has been tested on several occasions and locations of India.”

The device has also been replicated at IIT Guwahati while the professors from the department of mechanical engineering and metallurgy have confirmed the generation of excess heat from the device developed at CER, S-VYASA.

The room heater is built on the concept of Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR).  This research is also termed as Solid-State Energy or Cold Fusion. While in India, the CER is undertaking pioneering research on it, similar R&D work is ongoing at USA, Russia, Japan and China with Governmental support.

Tangirala, who wants to keep the cost “discreet” for now, hints that the innovation will be affordably priced and will be commercially available pan India in two months’ time.
