Solar Thermal Action Plan for the Mediterranean Countries

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on November 10, 2014

The Mediterranean region is endowed with significant, yet largely untapped solar resources. Solar water heating (SWH) systems are already commercially viable and, in some cases, already cost competitive. In particular, domestic solar water heating applications are the most well-known and widespread. A great potential is still to be tapped in other niches. Thus, promising future applications include process heat, district heating, cooling and desalination.

Final Report on Market Assessment of Solar Water Heating Systems in Industrial Sectors (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on August 3, 2012

This report was commissioned by India’s Ministry for New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) to estimate the realisable market potential for Solar Water Heating (SWH) systems in India’s different industrial sectors, and to prepare action plans for future development. The MNRE concluded that the industrial penetration of SWH would need scalability, innovative marketing, financing and service delivery mechanisms.

Mass Solar Water Heating Implementation in the Western Cape (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 26, 2012

This document provides a strategic analysis of national and global policies and best practices for SWH market development, resulting in a clear action plan for application by South Africa’s provincial government of Western Cape. The authors, Sustainable Energy Africa, are clear that South Africa’s target for 1 million SWHs by 2014/2015 will be only met with a coordinated approach from its different levels of government.

Morocco’s Solar Water Heater Applications (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 13, 2012

This presentation by Abdelali Dakkina (Moroccan Centre for the Development of Renewable Energies, CDER) summarises Morocco’s multifaceted approach to facilitating market development for Solar Water Heaters. With 200,000m2 solar collectors already installed in 2009, the government estimates a potential capacity for 3,000,000m2 by 2020 if the correct environment is fostered.

Market Assessment of Solar Water Heating Systems in Five Potential States/NCR Region (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 6, 2012

This report is a deliverable of the “Global Solar Water Heating Transformation and Strengthening Initative”, jointly funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Copper Association. In India, the commitment for SWH deployment has been supported by the government’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

Solar Action Plans in POLIS Cities (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 16, 2012

This document is one of the deliverables of the EU-funded project POLIS - identification and mobilization of solar potentials via local strategies (2009-2012).

The project aims at boosting the development of solar energy with regards to urban planning and decision making in six European cities: Lyon and Paris in France, Munich in Germany, Lisbon in Portugal, Malmö in Sweden and Vitoria-Gasteiz in Spain).

Renewable Energies Sources in Finland – OPET Report (2002)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on July 22, 2009

In 2000, 25% of Finland’s energy consumption resulted from renewable energy sources, which makes Finland share of RES in the total energy consumption the third highest in the EU.

Nonetheless, the government launched a National Climate Strategy and Action Plan for Renewable Energy in 2001 with a view to meet the Kyoto commitments for Finland. The long-term objective is to increase the competitiveness of renewable energies and to ease the development of an open energy market without continuous support measures.
