BLUESOLAR Technology is the first worldwide concept about a Photovoltaic Plant with Thermal Storage.
The mirrors in typical solar thermal plants are substituted by PV panels with an integrated light optical selective filter.
The filter transmits only useful light to the PV cell while reflecting 40-45% of light to the thermal receiver to generate heat.
The heat can be stored at a fractional cost of electrical batteries and can be dispatched in form of electricity via turbine or direct heat whenever is needed.
Two major markets are addressed with BlueSolar tech.: PV plants with storage & PV plants with a co-generated heat quite valuable for many Industrial Processes.
