Solar water heating
The Illustrated Guide to Renewable Technologies BG 1/2008, By Kevin Pennycook, published by BSRIA in March 2008, states: ‘Solar water heating systems use the energy from the sun to heat water, most commonly for hot water needs (such as washing and cleaning requirements). Solar heating systems use a heat collector that is usually mounted on a roof in which a fluid is heated by the sun. This fluid is used to heat water that is stored in either a separate hot water cylinder or in a twin-coil hot water cylinder (the second coil is used to provide additional heating from a boiler or other heat source).’
