Vulvox Invents New Solar System

A solar power system combining photocell panels and concentrating solar thermal generation is under development.

Sept. 25, 2008 - PRLog -- Solar thermal power systems are multiplying as the worldwide oil shortage and greenhouse warming cause fossil fuel based energy sources to increase their price to unprecedented levels.  Solar thermal is already cost competitive with conventional sources of electricity in certain places such as southern California and  Vulvox has designed a combination solar thermal-photovoltaic system that will produce a much larger amount of electricity from the same size solar power plants. The result- lower generating costs, more efficient use of land,  and the opportunity to replace parabolic troughs in existing solar plants with our dual generating parabolic troughs at less cost than building entirely new plants.

Vulvox President Neil Farbstein described the solar system as a breakthrough with higher efficiency than either photovoltaic or solar thermal power systems by themselves. Solar thermal will store the day's collected heat in hot oil or molten salt while the photovoltaic component will generate power during the day. The solar thermal system works during the day, collecting heat and transforming it to power using regular steam powered generators
and it also generates power from stored heat at night to enable uninterrupted power from solar energy plants.
