Concentrating photovoltaics

Published on

Concentration Photovoltaics (CPV) has experienced a large thrust in the last couple of years as it is starting to deliver very promising technologies into the market. The role played by the Institute of Concentration Photovoltaics (ISFOC) in Puertollano, Spain, has been key to the growth of the industry helping the development of the first commercial products and their deployment. Multijunction solar cells with commercial efficiencies close to 40%, innovative optical designs that minimise losses and novel approaches to the tight CPV tracking requirements are the main technical advances that are easing up the way of CPV deployment.
The ISFOC project has been financed by the Spanish Government and through the installation of up to 3MW of various CPV technologies is helping to define the standards for the industry and their evaluation of power and energy performance. Further on, ISFOC will be open for collaboration in applied research and technology on all the key areas of CPV which is to become a major sector in renewable energy generation across the globe. This webinar will review the current status of the ISFOC project and the technical and commercial opportunity for CPV.
