Vulvox Invents New Solar System
A solar power system combining photocell panels and concentrating solar thermal generation is under development.
By: Vulvox Nanobiotechnology Inc.
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.
