Have you ever wondered how to enhance profitability of solar energy? At the moment this is only possible thanks to strong subsidies from governments. We hope for innovations in industry which lower the price for silica panesl and wiring and at the same time rise productivity.
Stefan Larsson from Sweden has managed a major breakthrough in this field. He uses silica panels on both sides and directs reflectors in a way that they absorb sun rays optimally when it is low over the horizon. At the same time, his heat collecting module cases are made of recycled carbon fiber from the aerospace industry. These modules are ideal for district heating, warming up water as well as generation of electricity, and their price without subsidies is not higher than that of subsidized nuclear power.
The panels by Solarus AB can be installed on rooftops and provide heating, warm water and electricity to households. The combination with a heat exchanging system even makes air condition possible. Its low cost even makes the Solarus system suitable for desalination.
