In a pilot plant in the Danish town Taars which was put into operation in August 2015, flat plate solar collectors (FPCs) and parabolic trough solar collectors (PTCs) have been combined for the first time. The plant consists of 5,960 m2 FPCs (of which half are single-glazed without foil, half are single-glazed with foil) and 4,039 m2 PTCs connected in series. Each collector type operates on a temperature level where its efficiency is high (FPCs between 40 and 75 °C, PTCs between 75 and 95 °C).
