How it works

Facts

$

A solar panel combines with a thermal back sheet and becomes a solar hybrid.

$

Cold flow from geothermal bore hole/energy storage or the cold side of the heat pump is sent through the thermal back sheet of the solar panel and we now have a Cold Solar Hybrid.

$

The cold flow cools the Solar Hybrid and at the same time absorbs the excess heat.

$

The Solar Hybrid works even when the sun is down and then acts as an air/water heat exchanger and thus delivers energy around the clock all the way down to 0 degrees

$

In both of the above mentioned cases, the energy collected is returned to the geothermal hole/energy storage which is heated in spring, summer and autumn and can then be used during the winter.

Advantages​

R

Longer life on solar panels when kept at a uniformly low temperature.

R

Longer life of heat pump thanks to better working temperature

R

A highly efficient way to save a wrecked geothermal bore hole/energy storage that has become too cold.

R

Low temperatures and low pressure systems provide easy pipe installation

R

Delivers up to 20% more electricity compared to a regular solar panel when it is cooled.

R

Up to 20% better heat pump performance

R

Scalable, works from villas to large residential properties and Hotels.

Easy installation

1. Preparation

Pipes of PEM tubing is prepared before the solar hybrids are put in place.​

2. Connection

Pipes and hoses are easily put together with pushfit couplings​

3. Result

Finished result of a Solar Hybrid roof​.
