Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR THE CO-PRODUCTION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE THERMAL ENERGY AND ELECTRICAL ENERGY FROM SOLAR IRRADIANCE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR LA CO-PRODUCTION D'ÉNERGIE THERMIQUE À HAUTE TEMPÉRATURE ET D'ÉNERGIE ÉLECTRIQUE À PARTIR DU RAYONNEMENT SOLAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (10) and method for the co-production of high temperature thermal energy and electrical energy from solar irradiance includes a photovoltaic cell (30) laminated to a metal extrusion device (40) and a transparent channel (20) in front of the photovoltaic cell (30). The transparent channel (20) contains a heat transfer fluid that is seeded with metallic, semiconducting, and/or non-metallic nanoparticles and absorbs wavelengths of solar energy that are not utilized or underutilized by the photovoltaic cell (30).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil (10) et un procédé pour la co-production d'énergie thermique à haute température et d'énergie électrique à partir du rayonnement solaire. Ladite invention comprend une cellule photovoltaïque (30) stratifiée sur un dispositif d'extrusion métallique (40) ainsi qu'un canal transparent (20) situé devant la cellule photovoltaïque (30). Le canal transparent (20) contient un fluide caloporteur qui est germé avec des nanoparticules métalliques, semi-conductrices et/ou non métalliques et absorbe des longueurs d'onde d'énergie solaire qui ne sont pas utilisées ou sont sous-utilisées par la cellule photovoltaïque (30).
