Abstract

The techno-economic assessment of Solar Water Heating (SWH) systems in the city of Astana, Kazakhstan, is presented. Active indirect solar collectors designed and manufactured by a local developer were considered in the analysis. This work makes evident that, despite the perception that unsubsidized solar technology is not cost effective yet, implementation of SWH systems for private households might bring economic and environmental benefits to Kazakhstan when competing with electric heating systems. The study shows that a SWH system in a single-family-home in Astana may produce 4.5 MWh of heating per year, reducing 56.3% the amount of electricity used by current heaters. The investment in a single-family home system with a cost of 1.5M KZT leads to 9-year equity payback under current financial conditions in Kazakhstan, subject to 5% interest-loan available for clean energy developers. Moreover, greenhouse gas emissions might be reduced in 3.3 tonnes of CO2 eq. annually per household.
