Thermically activated solar panel – STAF panel - is an innovative solution for heating and cooling systems. With the use of the STAF panel we plan to largely reduce the energy costs. We have been dedicating a lot of attention to the technology of connecting the boards, the research of the most appropriate binders and insulation technology and the elements enabling the supplies of liquids (energy storage, the pump).
The prototype is a sophisticated upgrade of the known classical solar panels, functioning by the principals of thermal dynamics while containing the absorber. It collects solar energy and at the same time heats the panel liquids. It is then adjusted on to the underconstruction. The new STAF panel does not need the underconstruction, for it is designed as an independent part. The outer side has in integrated solar absorber, with the energy gaining function. The inner side of the system adopts the function of temperature adjustment, so that the energy collected at the outer side can be used for heating in cold days and cooling in the summer time.
