DiGeSPo concentrated solar power prototype site. DiGeSPo is a modular 1-3 kWe, 3-9 kWth micro Combined Heat and Power (m-CHP) system based on innovative Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and heat engine technology. At Arrow Pharm in Malta it provides electrical power, heating and cooling for single and multiple domestic dwellings and other small commercial, industrial and public buildings. It integrates small scale concentrator optics with moving and tracking components, solar absorbers in the form of evacuated tube collectors, a heat transfer fluid, a Stirling heat engine with generator, and heating and/or cooling systems. It incorporates them into buildings in an architecturally acceptable manner, provided of low visual impact.
