Solar-thermal energy conversion with NPs (Solar Energy 203, 2020, 37)

Nanofluids comprised of nanoparticles in ethylene glycol have been prepared. The energy absorptive properties of the prepared nanofluids were investigated as a potential additive to the traditional working fluids used in solar thermal collectors. The application feasibility has been assessed by calculating a value of power which could be transferred to the thermal
fluid (Solar Energy 203, 2020, 37).
