PowerCollector - Solarus
The Solarus PowerCollector™ is a concentrating, hybrid solar photovoltaic and solar thermal panel. Concentrating means that it has a curved mirror to collect and reflect more sunlight throughout the day. Hybrid means that it combines solar photovoltaic (PV) generation of electricity with solar thermal (T) generation heat.

Graphic-What-is-it-for

The potential of this hybrid system has long been dubbed the “golden egg” of solar technology because,

compared with traditional PV panels, it is capable of producing four times more power per installed surface area.

What it does

 

Four times more power from each PowerCollector™ means 1500W for…

Our three core technologies

ACC™

 

Solar PV cells become less efficient as they heat up. We want to ensure that our PV efficiency remains stable by reducing the cell temperature.

Active Cell Cooling™ means we use water to draw heat away from the solar PV cells. The result: improved electrical performance of up to 40% and extended cell longevity.

MaReCo™ and WBT™

 

The sun traverses the sky throughout the day and provides less energy during winter. We want to maximize the amount of power collected and ensure that annual coverage is as even as possible – without the need for complicated tracking systems.

Winter-Summer_v2

Maximum Reflector Concentration™ technology is our solution:

a curved mirror – technically an asymmetrical parabolic trough – reflects as much concentrated sunlight onto the receiver as possible, no matter the sun’s angle.

Winter Boost Technology™ enables us to customize our system according to local needs. It doubles the outcome. Our thermal output during winter is the highest in the world.
