Thanks to the high temperature level, the SunOyster can supply
a broad variety of heat applications.
Commercial users in particular can save money. By using thermal refrigeration systems to convert the heat into cold, the SunOyster can cover the complete energy demand of hotels, office buildings, shopping centres or cool stores.
The SunOyster can also cover the power and high grade heat requirements of many industries such as food, textile or chemical manufacturers.
For private users the SunOyster can be mounted on the top of roofs, garages, carports or simply placed on the ground. Taking the example of a house with a swimming pool in
Southern Italy the SunOyster can cover domestic hot water demand throughout the year. In winter, it can heat the house. In summer, the heat can be converted by small thermal chiller into cold to air-condition the house. If the waste heat of the chiller is further used to heat domestic hot water or the pool, this tri-generation is extremely efficient. In spring and autumn the SunOyster can heat the swimming pool.
Multiple SunOysters can contribute energy to large scale applications: for example the heat can be used to dry fuel, pre-heat combustion air or be injected in the steam cycle of a power plant. The solar heat thereby substitutes for fossil fuel or biomass consumption. Another possible use is desalination plants.
