Ultra-thin and lightweight photovoltaic/thermal collections for building integration
- Conference Paper
Unglazed PVT collector concepts to cover electricity and heat demands of LowEx Buildings have been experimentally and numerically evaluated. Critical aspects affecting electrical and thermal efficiency are identified. A promising solution was found in the direct lamination of thin-film solar cells onto a channel-plate thermal collector resulting in a highly efficient, super-light (<4kg/m2) and ultra-thin (<4mm) PVT collector. The lightweight design simplifies building integration and reduces the amount of materials and associated costs as well as environmental impacts Show more
