In this current study, we trialled solar water heating systems to provide evidence on how actual systems perform in real homes in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. This field trial, developed in 2008, follows our report on our field trial of domestic small-scale wind turbines, Location, location, location, and last year’s report on our trial of domestic heat pumps, Getting warmer.
In line with the Energy Saving Trust’s previous field trials, these results have been peer-reviewed by experts in the industry.
The Energy Saving Trust is committed to providing impartial and realistic advice to industry and to consumers, helping people to save energy and reduce carbon emissions. One of the key ways we do this is by providing expert insight and knowledge into low carbon/renewable energy technologies. Our activity in this area includes policy research, technical testing, and consumer advice.
The results of the trial have been integrated into our consumer advice network, continuing our role as impartial advisors in the field.
