Existing PVT Systems and Solutions
Report A1
May 2020 - PDF 3.77MB - Posted: 2020-05-07
By: Thomas Ramschak et al.

The report presents recent PVT applications in the world in a vrieta of applications. A worldwide survey of operating PVT plants for year 2018 is also presented. Within this survey, 22 920 PVT-systems were identified. A global market overview and a sample of installed PVT systems with various PVT-collector types are exhibited in the report, spanning most of the relevant PVT applications. These case studies include a general description of the solar installation, the overall heat supply concept and integration scheme, and other pertinent information to provide a deeper understanding of the subtleties of such projects.

PVT collectors can be still considered as young technology, but with significant growing tendency in terms of market
development and number of manufacturers on a worldwide point of view. Nevertheless, PVT is definitely in an early
stage of its product life cycle, where economic competitiveness among other renewable technologies providing heat
and electricity is challenging.

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.

Hygric properties of porous building materials (IV) Semi-permeable membrane and psychrometer methods for measuring moisture storage curves
April 2019 - Posted: 2019-11-08
By: Chi Feng, Hans Janssen
Publisher: Building and Environment, Volume 152

Two novel methods for measuring the moisture storage curves are proposed. They feature in wide applicable range, low cost, simple handling and efficiency. Both adsorption and desorption in the over-hygroscopic range can be measured. Tests on 3 representative porous building materials are performed and validated.

The aim of SHC Task 60 is to assess existing PVT solutions and develop new system solutions principles in which the PVT technology offers advantages over the classic “side by side installations” of solar thermal collectors and PV modules. Best practices are not yet widespread for these systems, and so this international collaborative project will help to accelerate the market acceptance of PVT technologies.

Many parameters of a PVT installation must be assessed: heat production, electricity yield, global efficiency, qualitative indicators, user benefits, investment, energy and maintenance costs, and safety and reliability of operation. All of which will be assessed by SHC Task 60 participants as they apply to several typical PVT applications.

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.
