1 The average energy consumption for water heating per family is 4,000 kWh per year (Equivalent to 3.7 barrels of oil per year) Barbados has approximately 50,000 Solar Water Heaters Total Energy saving (per year) 185,000 barrels of oil per year, or 200,000,000 kWh per year Total Oil Imports saving (per year) US $ 12,950, (US $ 70.00/barrel) BDS $ 25,900, per year 1

2 2 Between 1974 and 2002, 35,000 systems were installed with BDS $260,000, savings to consumers. Perlack Report, Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the USAID.

4 Consumer Energy Savings from 1974 to 2009: BDS $ 819,640,

5 5 Oak Ridge National Laboratory calculated that Barbados saved 15,000 metric tons of carbon emission from 35,000 Solar Hot Water Systems in This corresponds to an average saving of: 428 kgCO2 per system per year This estimate is in accordance with the US Department of energy (25.4 metric tons of carbon per terajoule). 6 (Bioenergy Feedstock Development Programs: bioenergy.ornl.gov)

6 In 2009, with 50,000 Solar Hot Water Systems installed, Barbados saved: 21,400 metric tons of CO2 This saving makes up more than 5.5% of all carbon emissions in Barbados. (estimated 380,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions in 2009) (Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Centre at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory). 7

13 The more important factors responsible for Barbados success in solar hot water systems are: Recognition of the potential importance of Solar Water Heaters at the very highest levels of Government Development of the industry at a time of rapidly rising electricity costs and awareness of energy costs. 14

14 Implementation of key fiscal incentives to lower Solar Water Heater costs. A small but timely Government purchase program for housing development projects. The combination of high electricity costs and financial incentives made for very low payback periods and little financial risk for the consumer. Local companies that stand behind the product by offering performance warranties, specified temperatures, and reliable after sales service. 15

15 The Barbados Solar Water Heating program is unparalleled in the Caribbean. (USAID) The Solar Water Heating program in Barbados is perhaps the best known and successful of all Renewable Energy Technology programs in the Caribbean. (USAID) The critical expertise to develop the solar water heating concept into a marketable and functional product was provided by James Husbands. (USAID) 16

16 A Special Innovation Award was given in 2006 as part of the National Industrial Awards, which sought to recognize the single innovation that has had the greatest impact on the landscape of Barbados within the last 50 years. That innovation was considered to be solar technology. BIDC. 17

17 Solar Dynamics Ltd. is the first known company in the world to give consumers a temperature guarantee. Solar Dynamics introduced independent product testing by the Florida Solar Energy Center. The design of a horizontal solar storage tank with production in North America by AO Smith and John Wood Ltd. The design of aluminum extrusions for collectors. 18

18 Based on projections US Agency for International Development Special Financing Mechanisms For The Solar Water Heater Sector, The market is for 17,900,000 people in 4,565,000 households across the Caribbean. Assumed Total Maximum Penetration between 10% to 50% depending on the country. (Trinidad 25%) Based on systems already installed, the potential market calculated is 798,000 systems. Average assumed price: US $ 1, = US $ 1,436,400,

19 Barbados has established itself as a leader in the Solar Hot Water Industry. The opportunity for expansion of the industry is enormous. EC $1= $1,000 Performance of Solar Dynamics E.C. Ltd. 20

20 A Vision for the Bahamas Set goal of 50,000 solar water heaters installed by 2015 Set goal of 50,000 solar water heaters installed by 2015 Implement package of incentives and financing to facilitate rapid adoption; explore mandate on new construction and require conversion beyond 2015 Implement package of incentives and financing to facilitate rapid adoption; explore mandate on new construction and require conversion beyond 2015 Significant energy use and emissions reductions possible Significant energy use and emissions reductions possible Powerful economic benefits 1 Powerful economic benefits 1 1 Based on oil price of $50 to $130, $0.60/gallon non-crude cost for diesel, carbon price of $10-$30 per mt, $0.35/kwh retail electricity rate, $4,000 average cost of SWH, 15% volume discount, and 60% of cost spent on domestic manufacturing/labor. 26 (Presenter: Mr. Al Binger)
