Perseverance paid off for the Clean Energy Processes Lab at Imperial College. After 10 years of challenging research to find a renewable energy solution through solar power, using a combination of both heat and electricity, they did it.
And for this successful project, the team won the Research Project Award at the IChemE Global Awards 2018.
They developed a novel integrated PV and solar-thermal (PVT) hybrid panel technology, that harnesses both heat and electricity to provide a form of renewable energy.
Christos Markides explains more on the project and how he feels to be an IChemE Global Award winner, in this video:
