Australians are pioneers in the use of solar hot water systems and over the past 40 years, Australian companies have produced some of the best solar hot water systems in the world. Locally, it has been found that roughly 30 percent of an average household's energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions come from water heating. In Sydney, an increasing number of homeowners are opting to install solar water heaters to reduce their energy costs as well as their carbon footprint.

Solar hot water systems in Sydney are available in two technologies: heat pumps and on-the-roof systems. The on-the-roof systems has collectors installed on the roof to gather radiant heat from the sun. The collectors include the conventional flat-plate, the more advanced evacuated tube systems and the newer heat pump technology.
