In recent years, many companies have attempted to replace fossil fuel-based technologies with models capable of running on solar power.

Among these are water heating gadgets. business thread reported that conventional water heaters are now being replaced by solar water heaters (SWH).

As the demand for environmentally friendly water heating solutions increases dramatically, researchers expect the SWH market to reach a valuation of $4.3 billion around 2027.

Growing demand for solar water heater

At the time of writing, many experts and organizations are still developing different models of SWH.

Recently, BBC reported that an engineer in Scotland has been able to create a portable water heater that relies on solar energy.

His work is just one of the new SWH systems on the market. Now this water heating solution uses the so called collector for those unfamiliar with solar water heater technology.

This component is responsible for storing solar energy from the sun, which the SWH system will use to heat a pumped working fluid by natural convection.

The International Energy Agency has claimed that the use of solar water heaters could reduce the cost of heating water by 25-50%.

Due to the efficiency of SWH, international governments and government agencies are always investing in the solar water heater market.

Where are the SWH systems located?

Solar water heating systems offer various advantages. The hot water they provide can help with bathing, washing dishes, and other similar activities.

It means that private households are among the places where SWHs are commonly located. Of course, commercial businesses also use solar water heating systems.

These include hotels, restaurants, shops, etc. Even manufacturing plants also rely on solar water heating systems.

There are different types of solar water heaters, such as active solar water heaters, passive solar water heaters, indirect solar water heaters, and direct solar water heaters.
