Solar water heaters (SWH) provide households, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and institutions with an in-house hot water supply fueled by renewable energy rather than carbon intensive grid electricity. According to a report published by the International Energy Agency in February 2021, coal, oil and solid biomass continue to meet 80% of the country's energy demand. The project is primarily focused on serving urban areas throughout the country, and manufactures, distributes, installs and maintains solar water heaters for a variety of residential, commercial and community buildings. Distribution is primarily through private entrepreneurs or larger entities that act as solar water heater dealers and franchise sub-dealers.
In addition to delivering approximately 120,000 tonnes of emissions reductions annually to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13), the project delivers a number of other sustainable development benefits. These include:
