Solar Flow's unique solution
Solar Flow is an Imperial College London spin-out company that has been formed to develop and commercialize a novel, award-winning solar-panel technology based on a next-generation affordable and high-performance heat and power concept.
The patent-pending Solar Flow panel features a unique spectral-splitting design that sends part of the sunlight that does not produce electricity to heat a fluid, thus avoiding unnecessary heating of the PV cells and maintaining them at cooler temperatures.
Low cost non-concentrating design
Max yield/min-area, easy to install flat panels
Higher efficiency than PV, pure Solar Thermal (ST) and conventional PVT
Higher temperatures and electrical conversion efficiencies compared to existing PVT
