Hybrid solar panels that produce both electricity and heat is a technology on the rise. The combination of solar cells (PV) and solar thermal collectors (T) allows for various ways to optimize buildings’ energy systems.   In this workshop, leading international experts will present the status of the PVT technology and present case studies where PVT collectors are integrated in buildings."   The workshop is open for all and free of charge.

Just as solar cadastres have become the norm to assess the roof-top PV potential in the last years, assessing the hosting capacity of the low-voltage network for electrical production is on the path to becoming a necessity for an efficient solar production action plan. The model developed here is a hybrid tool composed of a physical model computing results based on a real infrastructure and a statistical model using empirical rules based on frequently encountered cases.

The connection of a solar thermal (ST) façade system to a district heating system allows for the direct use of ST heat in the building while taking profit from the network for delivery/selling of excess heat and purchase of heat during periods of underproduction. The use of unglazed collectors for low-intrusive architectural interaction in façades is discussed.

In most cases, building service designers choose between Solar thermal (ST) and District Heating (DH) technologies for their integration in buildings. By doing so, only a fraction of the buildings within a particular district is used for ST, while at the same time energy intensity in DH networks can be reduced. In some cases, building-integrated solar thermal systems are connected to DH networks by means of dedicated pipes. In all these cases, sub-optimal situations are reached with lower fraction of renewable heat, reduced network strength and/or additional heat losses.

The event will provide insights into the impacts of R&D funded through the EU Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation; including providing access to the solar thermal Renewable Energy R&D Impact Report and an opportunity to influence the recommendations to increase future R&D impacts. During the workshop key industry experts, including ESTELA, Solar Heat Europe / ESTIF, Tecnalia, and AEE - Institute for Sustainable Technologies, will share their insights on the future of solar thermal technologies.
