What is a hybrid photovoltaic-thermal collector?

The hybrid photovoltaic-thermal collector is a device that allows you to combine to produce both electrical and thermal energy through solar radiation. Photovoltaic panels are able to absorb not only solar radiation, but also the heat that can be utilized very well in hybrid collectors. This can increase the effect of photovoltaic panels, which are lacking high efficiency outside the summer season. This has positive impacts on both finance and the environment.
