Objective: 

The Solar Thermal HVAC (ST-HVAC) System is a low carbon, green house gas-free air conditioning solution. The ST-HVAC set up at NETRA is basically a 'proof of concept' plant. Once various elements of this technology are proofed and the efficacy of the plant is established, the same can be replicated in power stations with or without scaling up. 

The brochure contains system descriptions and further details.
