IHC-2025 is a focus concentrating solar collector for the hybrid generation of heat and electricity, which represents the state-of-the-art in terms of solar technology. The solar radiation is reflected by high-quality silver-plated mirrors on a receiver including a high-performance multi-junction PV cell and a heat exchanger, mounted on the back of the photovoltaic cell. One module includes 20 basic receivers, for total peak power at reference conditions* of 1kW electric and 2 kW thermal, with total efficiency in solar energy conversion of about 75% (30% electric, 45% thermal).
The outflow temperature range (50°C – 70°C) is compatible with the supply of domestic heat water. Modules can be connected together for reaching the desired output and easily integrated into the heating and electric networks of single buildings or settlements.
