Project: Novel concentrating PV/T & T solar collector and automated production methods

Solarus today has a unique patented design of a concentrating Photovoltaic/Thermal solar collector (producing heat & electricity from 1box). This design has been tested successfully and, if produced in large scale, is expected to out-compete other collectors in €/total kWh produced (see annex). The main goals are to finalize the product design so it can be produced in an automated manner and to create the automated manufacturing methods. These are the final steps to reach cost competitiveness
