Solar Energy Harvesting: How to Generate Thermal and Electric Power Simultaneously B-SPIE-012

Solar Energy Harvesting: How to Generate Thermal and Electric Power Simultaneously describes energy harvesting using a hybrid concentrating photovoltaic (PV) system with simultaneous thermal generation for energy storage. Several designs have been proposed to build a system that takes advantage of the entire solar spectrum through direct electric generation using concentrated light onto photovoltaics while generating thermal energy using wavelengths of light not captured by the PV cell.

This title addresses the current technologies and state-of-the-art designs, as well as the methodologies, underlying physics, and engineering implications.
