Priority number(s): 2015IT-TO00480



These patents describe a method for generating steam in either a planar or in an hollow structure using solar radiation. The “solar radiation-to-vapor” efficiency is enhanced by the thin-film evaporation process occurring within the structure. The produced vapor is then condensed in a thin-film regenerator, which allows to recover the latent heat and thus to further increase the overall energy efficiency.
