Zimbabwe: “Installing 100 locally produced storage tanks in 2013 would be a big success”

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 1, 2013

At the beginning of December last year, the Southern African Solar Thermal Training and Demonstration Initiative (SOLTRAIN) entered its second phase. The aim of the project is to support the African partner countries Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe in developing an energy supply based on renewable energy in general and on solar thermal in particular. Solarthermalworld.org spoke to Dr Anton Schwarzlmüller, project partner in Zimbabwe and owner of engineering company Domestic Solar Heating (DSH), about the solar thermal market in Zimbabwe, the impact of the SOLTRAIN initiative and the expectations for phase 2 of the project. The photo shows the solar hot water system on the roof of a female student’s hostel in Harare, Zimbabwe. Both tank and collectors were locally manufactured and assembled.
