The PVT technology combines solar PV and solar thermal in the same PVT panel. In this way, both electricity and heat are produced by the PVT panel. Compared to the PV technology and the solar heating technology the PVT technology is in the early market stage with only few small and weak industries active. Best practices for the PVT technology, which is still under rapid development, are summarized. Marketed systems with different PVT panel types, different PVT system types with different components for different applications are considered. The potential advantages for PVT systems and the needs for key actors in order to establish a successful sustainable future PVT market are given. Finally, recommendations for a subsidy scheme for PVT systems are given, so that a PVT market can be developed in parallel with the successful PV market.
