Project description The aim of this project is to develop innovative, multivalent photovoltaic/thermal (PVT) collectors which are able to generate photovoltaic electricity despite limited roof space, can be used as a source of heat for heat pumps and represent a highly innovative solution due to the use of night-time radiative cooling to condition buildings during the summer months. The PVT collectors are intended for two specific applications. The first is a heating load dominated scenario based on the lower summer cooling loads of the German and North European markets. The second is a cooling load dominated scenario featuring radiative cooling, the removal of heat from the cooling machine and low heating loads during the winter months. The PVT collectors will be tested and optimized in realistic environments. The overall system will also be integrated into two test buildings entered in the Solar Decathlon competition (the home+ building in Stuttgart and the Ecolar building in Konstanz).
