Abstract Current trends in energy supply and use are unsustainable, concentrating photovoltaics (CPV) would realize the cost-competent photovoltaic application in future, however, its low-temperature waste heat is commonly to heat or refrigerate. From the view of reducing the condensation pressure of Kalina cycle, a hybrid solar concentrating photovoltaic/concentrating solar power (CPV/CSP) system is proposed in this paper and has been capable of converting low-temperature waste heat (65℃) from… CONTINUE READING
