• The use of the solar heat is maximized by combining applications at different temperature levels.
  • The 220°C solar heat drives an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC turbine) to generate electricity.
  • An absorption chiller next uses the heat at 180°C for cold production.
  • The remaining temperature level can be used for hot water production and space heating.
  • Other combinations are possible, e.g. production of high quality drinking water with a solar-driven flash desalination system.
