This presentation was made during the Workshop on Solar Thermal Applications in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan which took place in Cairo, on 24 March 2009.
The document includes vast information on Syria (energy indicators, an assessment of the energy sector, analysis of the electricity demand, state of the art of the solar water heating technology and industry, R&D, standards and regulations, etc).
The presentation also mentions as main barriers to the market development, the lack of consumer trust on the technology, few finance schemes available, too much emphasis on oil and gas. More government programmes focusing on finance schemes and awareness raising activities would contribute to boosting to solar thermal market in Syria.
