Presented at: 9th International Conference on Solar Energy in High Latitudes. Northsun 2001, Leiden, The Netherlands, 6-8 mei 2001.

A PV laminate converts roughly 15% of the incoming radiation into electricity,but a far larger part of roughly 65% of the incoming radiation is converted into heat. In order to test if this heat can be colelcted and used as a source for a heat pump, a system of 20 m2 has been installed on the roof of one of the test houses at the complex of ECN. The monitoring of the system has started in February 2002. The paper shows the results of preliminary measurements as well as the first simulations.
