ONGC Fosters Solar Chulha Manufacturing To Fuel Indian Households Sustainably

Mr Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon’ble Minister of Petroleum & Natural and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship attended the ‘ONGC Solar Chulha Challenge’ exhibition. The challenge is aimed at developing cost effective and efficient solar power stove systems in line with the vision of Hon’ble Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi to touch poor lives by providing them safe and low cost alternatives for clean household cooking.

This is the first-of-its-kind initiative taken up by any corporate to promote solar chulha in order to reach out to the last mile of the society. The genesis of the challenge lay in the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s call given to ONGC to foster the development of ‘Efficient Electric Chulha (Stove)’ that can provide smoke-free kitchen to the mothers in each and every part of the country, while inaugurating ONGC’s Corporate Office Deendayal Urja Bhawan in September 2017. “This innovation would significantly impact the nation’s dependence on imported fuel in one stroke”, the PM had said.

Mr Shashi Shanker, CMD ONGC steered the initiative to realise the vision of Hon’ble Prime Minister to make clean cooking alternatives available to the commonest of common citizens of the country. Read More
