The Smart Solar Window (S.S.W.) is a window that can generate energy without seeing solar cells in the window, because they are attached to the side. A Luminescent Solar Concentrator (L.S.C) (Luminous Coating) that is mounted between two glass surfaces ensures that the sunlight shining on the window sends to the sides of the window frame. The solar cells that are fixed in the window frame catch the sun (UV light) and generate energy. Because the luminous coating is between two windows, one can also generate energy in the evening and night hours, by means of a white screen from the inside that reflects UV light. UV LED light that is projected from the inside onto the white screen ensures that the S.S.W. 120 kWh per year, per square meter yields That while a regular solar panel yields 75 kWh per year, per square meter.
Generating hot water:
The S.S.W. can not only generate energy, but also hot water. This by means of vacuum tubes on the side in a reverse u shape. Because the luminous coating generates energy and also radiates heat to the side, the vacuum tubes 'through which water is pumped' are heated and stored in an 80, 100, 150, 200 etc ... liter tank. The hot water can be used for shower, bath and (floor) heating. The darker the luminous coating is, the more energy and warm water can be generated. (The hot water boiler can be connected with a Solar Boiler or a Heat pump installation or a Pellet stove / boiler)
Cooling and heating:
The S.S.W. is designed with the aim of generating as much energy and warm water as possible, and the S.S.W. make sure the house or greenhouse cools down on hot days and heating during the cold days. So we can speak of an All in One Smart Solar Window.
