Abstract

This paper is a preliminary review, which identifies known barriers for the slow uptake of solar water heaters in Australia. It analyses the reasons why these barriers exist and tries to suggest further measures to overcome them. The barriers are grouped in four categories: technical, social, economic and policy. Recommendations for improvement of solar water heaters take up in Australia are given with summarised suggestions and directions. Some observations were based on a customer database of the now ceased Sola-Kleen Company in Perth. This paper aims to identify the barriers for the slow uptake of solar water heaters in Australia and recommends future steps to overcome the barriers.
