Currently in India milk processing is more than 30 % of the total milk production. Since long the Indian dairy industries relies on the non-renewable sources of energy, which not only getting more and more expensive but also are responsible to serious health concerns and environmental problems such as global warming. Therefore, adoption of green energies has been promoted by research communities, social and environmental groups and government. Considering the geological location of India, solar energy has been proven most promising among the available green and renewable energies. The requirement of energy intensity and temperature range in milk processing operations are amenable for adoption of solar energy.

Keywords: Renewable energy, Solar water heater, Milk and milk products
