19 September 2011 Efficient hybrid electric and thermal energy generation
Author Affiliations +
We demonstrate a novel hybrid solar photovoltaic electrical and thermal energy cogeneration system with high efficiency, at potentially reduced overall weight and size compared with current solar energy systems. The new system is based on highly efficient photovoltaic solar cells and tubular water thermal receivers, incorporating holographic spectral beam light guide concentrators resulting in a more cost-effective solution. Details of fabrication and preliminary experimental testing results are presented.
