AB - Solar energy has the potential to cover a high fraction of thedemand for heat and electricity in residential buildings. Fig. 1 showsthe variation in incident solar irradiation received across Europe.In London the annual solar irradiation is ~1100 kWh/m2 per year,while the typical domestic energy consumption per household is~12000 kWh/year for heating and ~4000 kWh/year for electricity.Thus the solar energy received on a rooftop of ~15 m2is enoughpotentially enough to provide the entire annual demand fordomestic energy.Our research focuses on various aspects of two solar technologiesfor the combined provision of heating and power (CHP): solarorganic Rankine cycle systems with low-to-medium temperaturesolar-thermal collectors (Figs. 2-3) and hybrid photovoltaic/thermal(PVT) systems. (Fig.4).
