The invention is a combination respectively a hybrid collector in which through concentration and the cleavage of the sunlight the waves in a length of 1000nm get concentrated and cooled on the solar cell. The thermal energy is recovered by another heat dissipating circuit.

Photovoltaic systems and solar thermal systems have various modes. The operating principle of photovoltaic systems is based on the heating of semiconductor cells, which convert sunlight into electricity. The disadvantage here is that the efficiency on the basis of semiconductor cells heating can be reduced by up to 30%.
Thermal solar systems, on the other hand, take advantage of the warmth of the sunlight. But the problem with solar thermal systems is that they disregard the "electric part” of the solar radiation.

The invented solar plant combines the operation of photovoltaic and thermal solar systems. The combination respectively the hybrid collector thus enables greater energy efficiency, as both the "electric" and the "thermal" part can be converted.
