Abstract:
    Our main idea is to apply the passive cooling techniques specifically the PCM and/or fins usage for the thermal management applications of PV Panels/Modules.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Energy shortage is one major challenge Pakistan faces. With ever-growing demand and the commitment towards a cleaner environment, the transition to renewables is imperative. With our thermally managed panels, we aim to provide more economical and efficient panels to our end consumers.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   These thermally enhanced panels will provide the domestic and industrial consumers more power for the same solar energy resulting in a more economical and efficient solution.
How will the solution works
    Increasing temperature adversely impacts the conversion efficiency of solar panels. Thus, The basic idea revolves around the concept of choosing the material with desired thermal properties as a heat sink named Phase change materials (PCMs). PCMs use latent energy storage capacity to absorb heat from the panel
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Almost all Renewable energy companies in Pakistan are selling conventional PV panels without providing the solution for efficiency loss in high temperatures of Pakistan. Our solution tries to make the panel energy efficient by employing thermal management techniques for increasing electricity yield.
