Solar Energy Harvesters


Sunrayker is developing a solar energy harvester that is able to produce two forms of energy; photovoltaic solar cells converts sunlight into electricity and a thermal absorber converts sunlight into heat. This means that the combined efficiency of converting sunlight into energy is very high, approaching 60%. The high efficiency enables the Sunrayker system to be able to harvest five times more energy than a photovoltaic array of a similar size.
