PVT collectors are always part of a system approach. These kinds of systems are highly integrated. So, all components have to interact with each other in a well-concerted way and it is important to describe this in a technical way that incorporates different information needed for the interaction. One possibility to describe the interaction of PVT collectors and other components in a system is the use of a representation of flows developed in an IEA SHC Task (Task 44 – see ref). The representation is called the “energy flow diagram” or simply “square views” (you will understand why) for the visualization of energy flows between the different system components.

A solar PV/Thermal (PVT) collector produces both heat and electricity. Two recent developments in the heating industry are opening the door for PVT applications.

1. The strong and increasing interest in Building Integrated PV (BIPV) and Façade Integrated PV (FIPV) not only in office and industrial buildings, but also in residential buildings where electricity and heating and sometimes cooling is required.
2. The developments in heat pump technology create more possibilities to make use of the low exergy heat source of uncovered PVT collectors and reduce the energy cost for the user and the need for borehole storage.

The HVAC industry, however, is not fully aware of the possibilities and benefits of PVT solutions, and international standards are lacking, which creates less confidence for the final PVT customer.
