Hybrid Solar Technology for Power Polygeneration and Energy Saving

Description

The market of solar thermal and photovoltaic electricity generation is growing rapidly. New ideas on hybrid solar technology evolve for a wide range of applications, as in buildings, processing plants, agriculture, and transport. In the building sector in particular, the limited building space for the accommodation of solar devices has driven a demand on the use of hybrid solar technology for polygeneration of active power and/or as passive solar devices. The importance is escalating with the worldwide trend of the development of low-carbon/zero-energy buildings. Hybrid photovoltaic/thermal (PV/T) collector systems had been studied theoretically, numerically, and experimentally in depth in the past decades. Together with alternative means, a range of innovative products and systems has been put forward. The final success of the integrative technologies relies on the coexistence of robust product design/construction and reliable system operation/maintenance in the long run to satisfy the user needs.

In this special issue, we invite authors to submit their original research and review articles addressing the current state of the art and the barriers to be overcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Hybrid photovoltaic/thermal collectors and systems
  • Photovoltaics-based thermoelectric technology
  • Combined solar heating, cooling, and photovoltaic power generation
  • Overall performance of building integrated hybrid solar systems
  • Material selection for climatic effect and energy storage
  • Production processes of hybrid solar cells and thermal devices
  • Hybrid solar system design, optimization, and management
  • Embedded energy, exergy, and economic evaluations of hybrid solar systems
  • Development of hybrid solar equipment testing standards

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijp/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
