Heat recovery supports for standard photovoltaic panels for large industrial, commercial or agricultural roofs.

The best photovoltaic module (PV) in the world can provide 22% yield. This means 78% is lost, mainly through heat. Our solution allows for the recovery of heat dissipated by a conventional photovoltaic module: this can offer up to twice the overall energy efficiency! The hot air collected can be used for:

  • Heating the building in winter
  • Heating water in summer
  • Drying processes (cereals, tiles, wood…).

After two years of R&D in collaboration with the University of Lyon, EPC Solar presents the hybrid iNovaPVT and iNovaBacPVT, mounting structures specially designed for heat recovery for PV modules that are dedicated to large commercial flat mounting roofs, or industrial and agricultural tilted roofs.Furthermore, EPC Solar has developed the dedicated software iNovaSunSoft, able to predict the efficiency of the solution in the process or the buildings of its customers.

The need

With the decreasing and, probably, the eventual disappearance of the feed in tariff of PV electricity, the photovoltaic market is moving toward self-consumption. Yet the investment return is still low, particularly in countries like France (with its low standard electricity price) or in northern Europe, (due to low irradiation). Developers are waiting for solutions that are able to increase the IRR of the projects.
