The SRB solar thermal panel
SRB Energy, c/o CERN – 1211 Genève 23, Switzerland
Can one build a solar thermal collector which reaches 400 °C even without using focusing mirrors? Yes we can, says SRB Energy, a company aiming at industrially producing a flat panel solar collector patented at CERN in 2003. The distinctive feature of this collector is the high efficiency achieved thanks to the vacuum maintained by a getter pump powered by the sun.
