Abstract: The fact that a PV-thermal energy system can supply energy for hot water and heating in a building is of vital importance for the proliferation of renewable energy sources. Central heating boilers are used in case of insufficient solar energy. This study mainly focuses on the planning of a PV-thermal power system for optimal energy supply in a building and a simulated performance analysis.
