Triple Solar develops smart, affordable and maintenance-free systems to generate sustainable energy. We invented the PVT heat pump panel and the PVT heat pump. These allow a home to be supplied with heat, cooling, hot tap water and electricity in a sustainable way. Completely without, or with considerably less fossil fuel. In all seasons, 24 hours a day. Thousands of homes have already been fitted with a Triple Solar system.

How does the Triple Solar system work?

The Triple Solar® system consists of Triple Solar PVT-heat pump panels combined with a PVT-heat pump. The panels work as a source for the heat pump. The panels draw energy from the outside air, from sunlight and daylight.

When heating with a heat pump, Triple Solar differentiates between completely gasless (all-electric) and a hybrid setup.

“The heat pump solar panels are constructed differently than regular solar collectors. Even if there is no sun, the heat pump solar panel pays off. It has no insulation at the rear, so it can extract as much heat as possible from the environment. Energy is extracted both at night and in winter, in order to feed the heat pump.”

“Anyone who talks about heat pump solar panels refers to a fully integrated system providing heating, electricity and hot water in one. With 8 panels you provide an average, well-insulated home for a family of four with sustainable heating and hot water. By placing another 8 regular solar panels, the daily electrical consumption is also covered. This makes your home energy neutral.”- Cees Mager, managing director Triple Solar.


5 advantages

Low energy consumption

The Triple Solar system uses the generated energy very sparingly. PVT panels usually generate as much power as the heat pump consumes.

Higher home value  

The Triple Solar PVT panels blend in beautifully and can be complemented with regular PV panels for an aesthetic overall look on the roof. According to research, with each sustainable measure that simultaneously includes embellishment, home value increases up to 5%.

Low maintenance costs 

The Triple Solar system has a lifespan of more than 25 years. The lack of moving parts means minimal maintenance.


Triple Solar PVT panels score very high on sustainability: they are constructed from European components and are fully recyclable. This translates into the low Environmental Cost Indicator (ECI) that reflects the total environmental impact throughout the life cycle.


Because there is no need to drill or install an outdoor unit, the Triple Solar system has no impact on the environment. The PVT heat pump is as quiet as a refrigerator.

High energy performance

A Triple Solar® system uses the generated electricity in a highly economical way. The SPF, (system performance factor), is the measure of energy efficiency on an annual basis. A well-dimensioned Triple Solar® system has an exceptionally high proven return. An SPF of 5.6 is feasible for space heating and an SPF of 3.8 for domestic hot water. This means that, on average over a year, every kWh of electricity generates 5.6 kWh of heat. These values ​​have been measured by TNO in the Netherlands and were recorded in a label of conformity statement. This makes Triple Solar® one of the most economical heating systems available.

Cooling and domestic hot water

Hot tap water all year round

The panels get extra warm during the day when the sun is out. At this time, the heat pump makes hot tap water in a very efficient way. This gives you almost free hot water in the summer.

Cool summers, warm winters

You can expand the Triple Solar® heat pump with an additional cooling module. This option provides night cooling at night and active cooling during the day. The module controls this process independently. With active cooling, the heat pump function is reversed. In that case, it works just like a fridge. The heat is extracted from the home and released outside through the panels.

  • “In order to be able to cool the space, floor heating and/or the use of low temperature convectors is essential. Ask your installer for the conditions. Pipes, for example, must be well insulated to prevent condensation.”
