|Title:||Solar water heating in Cyprus: current status of technology and problems||Authors:||Kalogirou, Soteris A.||Keywords:||Hot water production;Solar water||Issue Date:||1997||Publisher:||Elsevier B. V.||Source:||Renewable Energy, Vol. 10, no. 1, 1997, pp. 107-112||Abstract:||The Cyprus energy scene is first presented in this paper and it is shown that 6.5% of the annual energy demand is provided from solar energy. This energy is mainly used in the domestic sector (93.5%) for hot water production. The present status of the Cyprus solar water heating industry is then presented followed by analysis of the various possible problems faced during the life of a solar water heating system with respect to poor hot water quality (temperature) and quantity. The analysis is presented in the form of a cause and effect diagram. The main causes of problems are identified as arising from materials and production, design, installation, operation, transportation, environment and climate and maintenance.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/231||ISSN:||0960-1481||DOI:||http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/0960-1481(96)00019-5||Rights:||Copyright © 1996 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.||Type:||Article|
