In this review, an attempt has been made for various applications of semitransparent photovoltaic thermal (SPVT) modules used for PVT-CPC water air collector, drying, space heating/cooling of the building, greenhouse integration for agricultural production of vegetables, and power generation. It has been observed that semi-transparent photovoltaic thermal (SPVT) modules are more efficient and economical for many sectors and have more advantages than opaque photovoltaic thermal modules. The brief details of each case have been discussed. Furthermore, a greenhouse integrated semi-transparent photovoltaic thermal (GiSPVT) system has been elaborated for vegetable growth with different packing factors.

Keywords: Semi-transparent PV module, Solar energy, Thermal energy.
