Caption: Solar water heater on a rooftop. The panels (black) are connected to a water tank (cylinder, upper centre). The sunlight striking the panels heats the water in them and this hot water rises through pipes into the tank by convection, with cooler water descending to be heated. This is a passive close-coupled thermosiphon system, producing hot water for domestic use. This model is from the Greek company Sonne Aktion, and includes the mark of the EBHE (Greek Solar Industry Association). Photographed in Greece.
