GIZ_SEA, 2015, Solar Water Heater Best Practices.pdf
The purpose of the review was to determine the best practice of SWH implemented by selected municipalities that previously in the Eskom Rebate Programme (eThekwini, City of Cape Town, Sedibeng, and Musina). The review explored the roll-out experience from a municipal perspective, considered the process from pre- and post- installation, with an intention to enhance future implementation of NSWHP.

GIZ, de Kock, 2015, Review of Solar Water Heater Standards.pdf
The purpose of the analysis was to outline and identify the existing and required standards that would lead to high quality production and installation of SWH systems. The evaluation of gap analysis on SWH standards will contribute to the enhancement of the SWH industry, formulate improved decisions for the implementation of the NSWHP and contribute to market development.

GIZ_Genesis, 2013, Cost of Supply Study Spreadsheet Model.xlsx
The cost of supply tool aims to increase municipal understanding on what it costs them to supply electricity to different customers categories in order to (i) develop tariffs that are in line with the occurred costs and (ii) consider the possibility of introducing tariffs for small-scale embedded generation. The guidelines provide explanations on how to use the excel model.
