GENERA 2021, the International Energy and Environment Fair, organized by IFEMA MADRID, at its Fairgrounds and to be held from November 16 to 18, will present, together with the main companies in the sector, the latest solutions in renewable energies, which show the best innovative profile and the effort in R & D of this industry.
Below are some of the novelties that can be seen in GENERA 2021:
ABORA SOLAR’s hybrid solar panels (photovoltaic-thermal PVT) combine the production of both types of solar energy – solar heat and solar electricity – in a single collector, thus obtaining a higher performance per surface. While the electrical and thermal performance of a hybrid panel is lower than that offered by each of these technologies separately, PVT panels do produce more energy per unit area. This feature is particularly important when the surface area available for installation is small. These hybrid solar panels with aHTech® technology not only minimize the heat loss of a panel, but also increase photovoltaic production thanks to the cooling achieved by photovoltaic cells.
AMPERE ENERGY,a Spanish company specialized in the design, development and manufacture of intelligent energy management and storage systems (SEMS), will present the first energy services platform for the management of local energy communities.
