List of Solar Water Heating (SWH) Projects

The lists given below (through hyperlinks) are not meant to be exhaustive. For the list of examples of government-funded projects, some smaller projects and latest projects are not included. For the list of examples of non-government projects, it is compiled from the Survey on Renewable Energy Installations, which started in late 2006, along with information gathered from other sources.

The Survey on Renewable Energy Installations is an on-going exercise. The survey questionnaire can be downloaded from the main page of Example Projects.

Some of the SWH projects are described below, with photos if available.
