Combination of solar thermal and solar photovoltaic power
Is there a way to combine solar panels with solar thermal power to produce electricity? If so, can it be done without having to produce steam from solar thermal power plant. As efficiency of solar cells decreases with increase in temperature, why can't we use the heat to produce more electricity?
Is not possible without heat because the word thermal is a production of heat
