Abstract

Solar water heater has been commercialized during the last two decades in Taiwan. The government initiated the incentive programs during 1986-1991 and 2000-2004. This created an economic incentive for the end users. The total installed area of solar collectors was more than one million square meters. The data shows that most of the solar water heaters are mainly used by the domestic sector for hot water production (about 97 %). The potential market of SWH in Taiwan is associated with the climatic condition, population structure, urbanization, building type of housing and status of new construction.
