In the context of climate change in the world at the global level, various actions are taken for the development of Renewable Energy and particularly solar energy. Many technology solutions have been proposed such as solar hybrid collector whose objectives is to improve the PV panels performance by recovering heat looses with the heat removal fluid. The objectives of this article is to propose an hybrid photovoltaic-thermal collector manufactured in a polymer material twintex® patented by Saint-Gobin company, to have product lighter, cheaper and easier to handle. We expose the performance of this TPV collector manufactured without air layer.
