The first PV Technology with integrated Thermal Energy Storage.
Capsun Technologies has developed the BlueSolar Technology together with Ghenova Ingenieria.
Capsun core knowledge comes from highly qualified personnel coming from solar leading institutions worldwide.
Capsun is focused on being the technology providers of the optical filter technology used in BlueSolar Tech., which includes R&D, Market Development, Commercial Resources and Operations.
BlueSolar Technology is the first worldwide PV + thermal cogenerator.
It is based on spectral splitting of the sunlight via patented formulation of cost effective optical filters.
BlueSolar tech. takes the best of both PV and solar thermal technologies since it takes the advantage from the low cost electricity generation of the PV and the cost competitiveness of the thermal energy storage.
BlueSolar technology converts standard PV Panel into dual PV-mirror Panels with an intelligent filter that splits the solar spectrum, transmitting to the PV cells only useful wavelengths for the semiconductor and reflecting to the central thermal receiver of the tower the remaining wavelengths. This reflection generates heat that can be economically stored and be converted to either electricity via turbine or producing high quality steam usable for industrial processes.
This PV panel conversion increases system efficiency up to 50% compared with standard 1 axis PV configuration.
