SolarTech Lab in the news

Prof. Luca Molinaroli – co-founder and collaborator at SolarTech Lab – is interviewed at the radio show SmartCity – Radio 24, explaining the new concept made up of a hybrid (photo-voltaic and thermal) solar panel and a heat pump. The system is being developed and tested at SolarTech Lab and a patent request has been filed.

This system has the following advantages:

  • increase the solar-to-electric conversion of the PV panel due to internal water cooling. Water cooling is used to produce low-temperature water which is then used as the cold source of the heat pump
  • the cold source of the heat pump increases its temperature thus increasing the overall efficiency
