India: Call for low-cost Solar Water Heaters in Himalayan Region

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 4, 2011

 Himalaya Map” The current use of Solar Water Heaters (SWHs) in India's Himalayan region remains rather limited, if not scarce. Including Jharkhand, the region's total installed collector area has been estimated at around 33,000 m2 until the end of 2010, which is less than 1% of the total installed SWH capacity in the country. Most of the existing systems are part of commercial and institutional buildings, whereas the domestic sector makes very little use of SWHs. These are some of the results of the study “Market assessment of solar water heating systems in the Himalayan Region” carried out by Greentech Knowledge Solutions on behalf of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
