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?

EnergyFlexHouse - Energy Neutral Concept House to Test Solar Collectors from Inaventa Solar

Denmark is set on becoming 100% independent of fossil fuels. This is an inspiring challenge, which can be met through development and beneficial application of energy efficient and sustainable technologies, expresses Danish Technological Institute (DTI) on their webpages. DTI is the responsible developer of the energy neutral concept house EnergyFlexHouse, which is a part of “Green Lab for Energy Efficient Buildings” (GLEEB). This has been established to evaluate and verify innovative solutions, with respect to both energy efficiency cost effective technologies and intelligent interfaces between the users, the equipment and the building itself. The last piece of this puzzle is the installation of Inaventa Solar’s solar collectors. These are integrated into the building on the southern facade and will be connected to a district heating network.
