New Zealand Report:An Inspection of Solar Water Heater Installations (2007)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 5, 2010

The New Zealand Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) and Building Research commissioned BRANZ to undertake an independent research study on the quality of solar water heaters in New Zealand, in terms of installation quality, energy performance and durability.

Conclusions of the study point out that in terms of quality, the systems analysed are very diverse, which denotes that there is still some issues in the application of standard practices.

Studies like these are important for the industry to understand the points needing more development, which will in turn improve consumer satisfactions with these technologies.
