What are solar collectors, and are these different from solar PV panels?
The energy market is going through a dramatic change. Extreme weather conditions confirm the climate challenges, and the Paris Agreement brings all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change. Solar energy is predicted to take a leading role in the modern energy mix, and there are two main approaches for the energy production, solar electric power (PV, photo voltaic), and solar heating. PV is the approach that most are familiar with, but our position is that it is also important to focus on solar heating, in order to satisfy the portion of the energy requirement with green, renewable solar energy. So, we simply asked one of our internal experts the question what are solar collectors, and what separates the solar collectors from solar cells?
