dc.description.abstract With increasing carbon emissions and decreasing energy resources, creating sustainable energy sources is crucial. According to the Department of Environmental Affairs and Planning, The Western Cape’s electricity demand forms 31% of the Province’s total energy demand. The objective of this research is to investigate mechanisms for implementing a large-scale Solar Water Heating (SWH) programme, aimed at reducing electricity demand in households, and achieve the renewable energy targets for the Western Cape. The thesis provides an overview of the concepts and technologies around SWH, and their development and application, both globally and in South Africa, with the objectives of identifying barriers to be overcome and methods of incorporating “best practice” into Eskom’s SWH programme. Mechanisms to promote the use of SWH are also considered. en_ZA
