IEA SHC Solar Academy: Solar Heat and Electricity: PVT Solutions for Buildings and Industry - Task 60

Wednesday, 25. March 2020 / 14:00 to 15:30  (PM - GMT/UTC)

Over the past few years, PVT systems that combine solar thermal technology and solar PV have gained more attention. In 2018, IEA SHC started the Task 60 called “PVT Systems” to better understand the applications of the technology. PVT solutions can be used in several ways, and Task 60 is currently investigating its application for heating/cooling residential, commercial, administrative and industrial buildings.

This webinar will introduce the current status of PVT technologies, show examples of systems, analyze the markets and trends, and talk about the key findings of Task 60.

The webinar will welcome the following three presentations:

  • Jean-Christophe Hadorn: Why consider PVT systems?
  • Laetitia Brottier: Overview of the PVT industry and perspectives
  • Daniel Zenhäusern: PVT systems figure of merits and KPI

Q/A Session: The 90-minute webinar will include a 30 minute Q/A session.
