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.
