The SOLTRIGEN project is the SOLar TRI GENeration of electricity, cooling and heat in one solar thermal plant. Commonly known is the usage of solar energy for the direct generation of electricity with Photovoltaic panels or huge Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plants, and the energy conversion of solar thermal energy for cooling, steam generation or heating applications. The SOLTRIGEN plant combines the usage of one solar collector field with Parabolic Trough Collectors (PTC) to be able to supply electricity, cooling and heat in one plant, and at the same time. This is world-wide the first time.
