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.
