Solar Water Heating, a Strategic Planning Guide for Cities in Developing Countries

Submitted by Amr Hai on November 19, 2015

As the world’s population continues to move into cities and urban energy demand increases, local offi cials – especially those in developing countries – are increasingly under pressure to address a range of energy, economic, and climate priorities.

Solar water heating (SWH) has signifi cant potential to help local offi cials and urban planners address the needs and priorities of their jurisdictions. At the residential and commercial building level, SWH can provide a sustainable, reliable and cost-effective option for endusers. At the city level, SWH can improve energy access for city residents, improve the stability of energy costs and the reliability of the electrical grid, create opportunities for new jobs, and reduce a city’s greenhouse gas footprint.

This guide provides a detailed overview of the Solar Water Heating (SWH) strategic planning process for urban leaders and planners in developing countries across the globe to jumpstart SWH market development.
