The Scope for Cost Reduction in a Mass Solar Heating Market

Solar heating is seen by many as a mature technology with little scope for cost reduction. Policy makers have preferred instead to focus their attention upon technologies that appear to offer greater potential to reduce costs over time and eventually compete with carbon fuels.

In this paper the components of cost that make up an installed price of a solar water heating system to the end user have been analysed and the opportunity to reduce those costs in a mass market are quantified.
