    The objective of the NAMA is to implement a domestic solar water heating programme to reduce electricity consumption in the sector of domestic households, institutional and commercial services and to boost energy supply.

    Activities: (2016 - 2017)
    The National Solar Water Heating Programme was launched on 30 September 2015, with the aim to:

    • replace electric geysers with solar geysers to reduce electricity consumption by households, institutions and commercial services sectors by up to 40% resulting in indirect reduced GHG from coal combustion at coal power plants and direct GHS reductions from standby diesel and petrol generators which are used to provide electricity during periods of load shedding caused by electricity shortages
    • replace the use of LPG and paraffin.

    The programme consists of a pilot and full implementation phases.

    • A pilot to 1000 domestic electric geysers with solar water heaters in 1,000 households. About 3.4GWh of electricity and 3,509 tCO2eq of carbon emissions are expected to be reduced.
    • A country wide rollout of solar water heating programme with 823,000 solar water heaters for the next 10 years. Mitigation of 2,888,080 tCO2eq annually below the business as usual scenario is expected.

    The preparation of the NAMA lasts six months.
