Solar Payback

 

Solar Payback is a three-year Solar Payback project, promoting the use of Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP) across four partner countries – South Africa, India, Mexico and Brazil. As part of the German International Climate Initiative (IKI), it is raising awareness of the technical and economic potential of SHIP technologies by clear and transparent information on the costs and benefits of SHIP applications and by helping to build selected reference systems. Solar Payback partners with solarthermalworld.org to spread the results of the project to a wider audience.
