GSWH Project : Global Solar Water Heating Market Transformation & Strengthening Initiative – phase II
The “Solar Water Heating Market Transformation and Strengthening Initiative” project, in cooperation with the United Nations Environment
Programme (UNEP) aims at accelerating global commercialization and sustainable market transformation of solar water heating
systems,thereby reducing the current use of electricity and fossil fuels for hot water preparation in residential, private service sector and public
buildings and, when applicable, industrial applications.
The activities within the second phase of the project include:
Market Assessment Report II: update of the previous Market Assessment Report. This report includes a new country-by-country analysis looking at the solar industry structure, information on certification and testing systems, etc.
