The RETScreen Solar Water Heating Project Model
The RETScreen Solar Water Heating Project Model can be used worldwide to easily evaluate the energy production, life-cycle costs and greenhouse gas emissions reduction for three basic applications: domestic hot water, industrial process heat and swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), ranging in size from small residential systems to large scale commercial, institutional and industrial systems.
It was built with the help of several experts from government, industry and academia and the financial support of the CanmetENERGY research centre of Natural Resources Canada's (NRCan).
The software provided free-of-charge and in multiple languages is useful for evaluating the economics of renewable energy installations. It can be used for a variety of purposes: feasibility studies; project lender due-diligence; market studies; policy analysis; information dissemination; training; sales of products and/or services; project development & management and product development.
