This presentation describes the Supplier Solar Academy of Sub-Saharan Africaâ€™s planned project to install low-pressure solar water heaters (SWHs) in low-income households throughout South Africa. The SWHs installed under the project - which takes advantage of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)â€™s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) - will typically be 110 litre storage tank low pressure SWHs with a collector area of 1.08m2.
Registered on 12 March 2011, projectâ€™s first phase will include 59,000 installations, with a total potential for 229,000 installations across South Africa in the 3 year duration. The presentation is clear of the various benefits for South Africa:
Social upliftment through free-of-charge provision of SWHs
Employment Opportunities regarding their installation
Environmental Benefits, including reduced electric water heating loads and estimated annual emission reductions of 1.3 tCO2/SWHA
Two other project partners join the SASSA in ensuring successful implementation: International Carbon (CDM Cycle Management) and Standard Bank (CER Offtaker). The presentation closes by giving details the projectâ€™s relevance within the CDM. Not only is it the first registered Plan of Action (PoA) in South Africa, but the first SWH specific POA worldwide.
