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

A review study on PVT was carried out, focusing on three main aspects: 1) Technology : different types of collectors, different ways of integrating PVT into energy systems, energetic yields of different system configurations, 2) Market overview : PVT industry, available products, principle fields of application, 3) Experiences : experiences from 7 pilot plants with collector areas between 50 m² and 3500 m², additional PVT plants in operation, points of view of different actors involved in the planning, construction and operation of PVT systems. This article presents the key outcomes of the study.
