Renewable energy



Most of the MSMEs meet their energy needs through electricity and through the use of fossil fuels like coal, coke, and petroleum-based fuels such as diesel and furnace oil. Also, a large number of MSMEs in urban areas and majority of the rural MSMEs use low-efficiency devices to derive heat from biomass fuels like firewood and assorted agricultural wastes. In the face of dwindling reserves and ever-increasing prices of fossil fuels, the focus is on finding ways by which MSMEs can switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources like solar and biomass. There is an immense potential to introduce energy efficient biomass based technologies like biomass gasifiers and solar thermal technologies for meeting demands for water heating.
