Submitted by Baerbel Epp on August 4, 2012

A new strategy to promote solar thermal technology in the Arab region is bearing fruit: Hosted by the German Institute for Solar and Heating Technology, SWT, the kick-off meeting for the Solar Water Heaters Certification Programme (ARSOL) took place in the south of Germany at the beginning of June. The initial strategy is to create an ARSOL network based on a certification programme similar to the Solar Keymark in Europe or the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) in the US. Some of the Arab countries already adapted the European Standards such as Tunisia.
