Combination of sun and wood for producing warm water and heating for houses. 
In Croatia a combination of solar panels and firewood is proving to be a promising, reliable way of heating smaller buildings and private houses. Building owners can supply themselves with warm water and heating without resorting to imports and irrespective of the price of crude oil.
The CCRES SAW PROJECT aimed to bring together partners with a background in crafts from Croatia, EU and rest of the world to promote the necessary technologies. The goal of the project was the creation of training schemes, marketing, networks and public relations operations capable of being adapted to all final users in the future.
