Solar Water Heating Systems for Bhutan II
The overall objective of this expert mission is to promote renewable sources of energy in a sustainable way to meet the energy requirement of the people. However, to make the program sustainable, adaptable and cost effective, there is an urgent need to undertake materials research for production, standardise the specification for adoption, development of preconditions for installation and maintenance.
The immediate objective of the proposed activity is to complete the proposal of a methodology for the development of standardised solar systems that are sustainable and adaptable under Bhutanese conditions and a suitable scenario for design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of solar thermal installations in Bhutan. The second immediate objective is the completion of the installation of the pilot demonstration plant with measuring equipment to allow for permanent monitoring and adequate sizing of solar installations in the future.
