Progress with RES4BUILD’s Solar Thermal Panels




After 10 months investigating optimal reflector geometries and receiver materials, MG Sustainable Engineering AB has, together with the University of Gävle, started designing and acquiring… Read More »



Abstract: Photovoltaic thermal (PVT) solar collectors can be an effective solution for system output improvement. Photovoltaic thermal collectors naturally have a more expensive receiver than… Read More »


Abstract: This paper presents an exergo-economic comparison of a Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Parabolic Trough Collectors (PTC) loop using two alternative types of molten salts… Read More »





New paper produced under the RES4BUILD project published in Energies 2020, 13(7), 1669. Abstract: Photovoltaic (PV) panels and thermal collectors are commonly known as mature… Read More »



Abstract: PVT collectors co-generate electricity and heat from the same gross area, thus achieving higher combined heat and electric yields. A comprehensive evaluation has been… Read More »

Abstract: Solar Collectors with Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC) reflectors redirect solar irradiance into the receiver (placed in optimal position). The concept of such devices is… Read More »

Abstract: In the presented paper, we developed a partnership with the Swedish company Solarus AB to study the performance of a CPV/T under very distinct… Read More »



Abstract: When the sun rises, so does the key element that will shape the future of the world energy landscape. It is not an understatement… Read More »

Abstract: Photovoltaic-Thermal (PVT) solar collectors generate electricity and heat from the same gross area. The annual electrical and thermal yields of these systems are dependent… Read More
