Why should you decide in favor of AKOTEC & solar thermal? If you are on a constant look for a fitting solar thermal or photovoltaic system for your own company or even your clients, some
questions will occur. The decision for the perfect system is very important, because the outcome is much higher, especially in the industrial and commercial market.
When comparing solar thermal and photovoltaic, it is very important to understand how they work: solar thermal systems transform the sun's energy into heat for warm water generation and
heating supply. Photovoltaic systems transform the energy of the sun into electricity, which can be used throughout the whole building. Which system is more efficient, is a high discussed
question and will be answered very differently. It depends on the building itself and what kind of demand it really has.
In comparison, solar plants don’t need as much collector surface. Plus, they have a much higher efficiency. After a deduction of all the energy conversions & “mid-stops” (storage tank, heat
exchanger), solar plants have an efficiency of about 50%, while photovoltaic only have 20%. This means a higher outcome and return in investment for your customers , when deciding for a solar
thermal system. The reason behind this big difference is, that solar thermal systems can use any kind of sunlight, because they actually only take the heat from the sun. Pv systems can’t use all
of the sun’s rays (infrared/ultraviolet), actually only a small dose.
At the end, the decision has to be made by you and your buildings demands. As it is with most things, the truth lies in the middle.
