Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 24, 2014
HananiaJordan’s national collector industry has been benefitting from public-sector offers, as from the one in November 2013, when Jordanian collector manufacturer Hanania Solar Systems won a tender to deliver and install more than 2,000 solar water heaters for low-income households. The project was funded with a budget of USD 1.8 million by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources in cooperation with the Jordan River Foundation. This March, the collector manufacturer announced on its website that it installed 2,137 solar water heaters in the first quarter of 2014. Samer Hanania, Assistant General Manager at Hanania, confirmed that the expected produced collector area of his company would increase by 50 % this year and reach around 70,000 m², according the World Map of Solar Thermal Industry published annually in international magazine Sun & Wind Energy.

Market Assessment Report and Solar Thermal Action Plan for the Mediterranean Region

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 26, 2013

“The Mediterranean region is endowed with a significant market potential and could become a frontrunner in the development of solar water heating and cooling technologies in several application areas.” This is one conclusion of the study “Solar Thermal in the Mediterranean Region - Market Assessment Report” published in September 2012. The association Observatoire Méditerranéen de l'Energie (OME) worked on both the report and a “Solar Thermal Action Plan” for the Mediterranean Region, which was published in December 2012, on behalf of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) (see the attached documents).

Solar Heat for Industrital Process Technical Report. State of the Art in the Mediterranean Region

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 9, 2012

The objective of this technical report is to provide an overview of the state of the art of Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP), to describe the main technologies existing worldwide, particularly in the Mediterranean, and give recommendations aimed at supporting the spread of this technology. Although there is a very limited penetration of solar technologies in the industrial sector, there is a great untapped potential.

Initial Market Assessment Report North Africa & Middle East (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 7, 2012

This report is one of the deliverables of the Global Solar Water Heating Market Transformation and Strengthening Initiative (GSWH Project), co-executed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and funded by the Global Environnemental Fund with co-financing of International Copper Association.

Given the focus on the Mediterranean basin, the Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME) was chosen as the regional partner of this project. The objective of the report is to provide the existing status and overview of solar water heating (SWH) industry in the country with respect to the solar energy applicability for water heating applications, achieved or installed capacities, supportive institutional and policy frameworks.
