Title: Evaluating and Designing Ultra-low-cost Solar Water Heating Systems

Northern Arizona University’s team is exploring ways to harness the sun’s energy to power hot water heaters. Solar water heaters for homes are very expensive, which prevents them from being adopted widely even in sunny regions. The team is designing and evaluating solar water heating systems made from economical components that reduce overall costs of the units but have minimal impact on performance.

Challenge Area(s): Energy
