  18. 18. Major BarriersPolicy barriersAbsence of regulations, rules and energy provisions tocontrol the quality and the effectiveness of the locallymanufactured, imported or used equipment.
  19. 19. Consumption Forecast of the PrimaryEnergy When Applying the RE & EE
  20. 20. Saving in Primary Energy
  21. 21. Major BarriersTechnical barriers • Absence of professional calculation tools or technical handbooks for design and sizing of large solar systems. • Absence of compulsory testing regulations that forces the manufacturers and importers to test their collectors, although a national testing facility to test solar collectors exist at the RSS. • High cost of high specification materials/component such as double-glazing, selective coating material, sheet metal, pipes. This results in hindering the development of designs and quality. • Hard Water, water freezing in the pipes of collectors in cold regions.
  22. 22. The height of the bottom of the storage tank isbeneath the collectors water outlet.
  23. 23. A SWH system installed near a chimney thatcontaminates the system with soot and othercombustion gases.
  24. 24. A SWH system installed in front of a high climbingplants.

  26. 26. Solar collectors placed directly on the roof surface
  27. 27. Large scale corrosion in the bottom of an absorberplate where the collectors are installed directly onthe roof surface
  28. 28. A SWH installed without consideration to safetymeasure and easy maintenance
  29. 29. Orienting SWH collectors in arbitrary directions
  30. 30. West
  31. 31. Major BarriersMarket barriers• Lack of incentives & financing options.• The majority of manufacturers are located in Amman which makes it difficult and more expensive for people living in other cities to install solar collectors and have periodic maintenanceSocial barriersRecently, most of the buildings are multi-floor withinsmall floor area. The floor area is usually used formany purposes such as, water tanks, dishes ….. etc,therefore, there is no enough space for installingsolar water heating systems for all residence.
  32. 32. RESULTSThe penetration of solar thermal technology to themarket can be achieved by the following: Modifying the existing solar system through transfer of EU technological know-how. Enhancing of awareness of using the solar systems. Incentives for using the solar systems, such as decreasing the taxes and customs on imported solar system and on the materials that are used in local manufacturing of the solar systems. Implementation of norms, standards and certification schemes
  33. 33. Next Steps1. Proper Financing Schemes2. Risk Mitigation: can be achieved through a regional marking program similar to the European Solar Keymark.3. Implementation of regulations, rules and energy provisions to control the quality and the effectiveness of the locally manufactured, imported collectors.
