Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on August 17, 2012

Delivered by the University of Malta’s Robert N. Farrugia at Malta’s annual Solar Energy Markets conference, this presentation attempts to quantify the potential for SWH growth in Malta up to 2020. With 10,000 solar water heaters installed in Malta prior to 2008, government grant schemes in following years - culminating in a 40% subsidy for the cost of a heater by 2010 - have significantly increased installations.

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on January 12, 2010

This short document produced by the Institute for Energy Technology of the University of Malta, presents the results of a study undertaken to investigate the energy consumption of a duplex apartment, using, for that purpose, different energy auditing techniques.

In Malta, the domestic sector takes over 36% of the total energy consumption in the country. The highest demand rates are verified in summer due to space cooling.
