Title: FLUID-COOLED BLIND PANELS CONFIGURED TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY AND HEAT
Abstract:
The present invention is an apparatus and method using solar insolation to heat fluid moving through panels, resulting in relatively hot fluid. A set of such panels might be installed in a window. Heat is removed from the hot fluid in a heat reservoir or heat sink, resulting in relatively cool fluid. In some embodiments, the hot fluid and the cool fluid are placed in thermal contact with opposite sides of a thermoelectric generator, thereby generating electricity. In some embodiments, photovoltaic cell modules are embedded in the panels, the fluid system improving the effectiveness of the cells. A given system might use either approach to generate electricity, or both. Heat from the heat reservoir might be used to heat a building. A thermoelectric system might be run in reverse at night.
