The Solar Water Heating TechScope Market Readiness Assessment was


developed as part of the Global Solar Water Heating (GSWH) Market
Transformation and Strengthening Initiative.
This report uses the TechScope methodology to analyze the SWH enabling
environments of six Latin American countries: Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador,
Guatemala, Paraguay and Per. This report does not detail the TechScope
methodology and is intended to be read alongside the original SWH
TechScope Market Readiness Assessment report (UNEP, January 2014).
