Research Institution
Cogeneration utilizes solar insolation to simultaneously provide electricity and address other build- ing energy requirements such as Heating or Cooling. Yet, the #1 energy use in Commercial Build- ings is neither of these, but instead Lighting. We show a novel solar Co-Gen architecture that optimally targets this top requirement, with the IR portion driving high-efficiency thermo-PV for electricity, while the visible used for a cost-reduced fiber optic Hybrid Solar Daylighting. This pro- ject unique brings together several technologies to optimally address Building Energy needs, and a team of specialized industry experts to realize this effort.
