Briefing to Preview Rise of Solar Water Heating for Commercial Applications


  • 03 2011 24

    PALO ALTO, California, March 24, 2010 – AltaTerra Research announced today that registration is open for a free thirty minute online web conference presenting sample findings from AltaTerra’s soon to be released report, “Solar Water Heating on the Rise: Tapping into Commercial Solar Thermal.” 

    The briefing, to be held on March 30 at 11:00 am PDT, will feature the report’s authors, Eric Paul and Jon Guice, discussing example findings from the report including:

    • Comparison of solar electric  (PV) and solar water heating (SWH)
    • US commercial installation figures
    • Value proposition of SWH for commercial and institutional applications
    • Example customers and applications for solar water heating

    The report, which will be released on Monday, April 4 and is currently available for pre-order, answers customer-facing questions about SWH systems for commercial application including an evaluation of SWH’s value proposition, discussion of most suitable industries, and profiles of how and why current customers are installing SWH systems.  Sample findings from the report include:

    • “The United States solar water heating market is now growing at about 20 percent per year in the commercial sector—a significant upturn from long-term trends.
    • Pilot installations are raising market acceptance and triggering follow-on purchases.
    • In a development that bodes well for the potential of a robust commercial market, solar thermal power purchase agreements are starting to take root in some areas. “

    “The U.S. commercial market is benefiting from new incentives and an increase in corporate and commercial customers seeking to meet resource efficiency goals and hedge against rising energy prices. On March 30, we will present an overview of the questions facing customers looking to install a solar water heating system and also profile how and why current customers have installed systems,” said the report’s lead author Eric Paul.
