Thanks to this certificate, the electricity which is produced by the PVT collectors can be sold under the feed-in tariff in the UK. Also the Turkish manufacturer entered into a distribution agreement with the British company Newform Energy.

Pilot projects with the PVT collectors are installed in Great Britain and Turkey. “This year, we are going to sell around 1,000 PVT collectors. In 2011, we are already aiming at 10,000 units,” said Kemal Ibis, Communication Director at Solimpeks. The collectors are available in two designs: the Volther PowerTherm for maximum thermal output and the Volther PowerVolt for a maximum electrical output.

The classic PowerTherm collectors, which generate only solar heated water also got the MCS approval and can benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive, as soon as the latter is launched.
