Nowadays, hybrid system from alternative energy has been developing drastically in order to fulfil the demand on electricity. One of that energy is solar energy that produces radiant light and heat that can be converted into electricity. Photovoltaic (PV) cell can be used to react with radiation and emit electrons resulting in electric current because of the flowing of electron charge over time. Then, thermoelectric module that use thermocouple (TE) concept can generate electricity because of the different temperatures between two layers of semiconductor material. PV cell and TE module will be integrated together to increase efficiency of electricity generation. The efficiency depends on solar radiation and solar heat temperature. Then, the liquid cooling system integrated together with prototype panel to maintain lower temperature at cold junction of TE module. So, the bigger difference of temperature between TE module junctions will produce more voltage and more electricity. This innovation has no emission and requires less maintenance. So, it can be considered as one of the green teclmologies for hybrid system
