PVT Wrap-Up – Energy Systems with Photovoltaic-Thermal Solar Collectors

Photovoltaic-Thermal (PVT) solar collectors simultaneously generate useful solar heat and electricity and thereby reach high area specific energetic yields. In the past few years, an increasing interest in PVT collectors could be observed. New products were developed and brought to the market and, particularly in Switzerland, a number of PVT plants were built. On behalf of EnergieSchweiz (a programme by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy) SPF is leading a study on the current PVT market, the state of the art of PVT technology, and on the experiences made by the various actors that have been involved in the realization of PVT plants.
