Concentrated Solar PV Technology – ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
Among all solar technologies that are available, concentration photovoltaic or CPV is one of the most efficient. CPV technology is based on high-efficiency triple-junction cells, used in the aerospace industry since the 90’s, reaching conversion rates exceeding 40% which is well above traditional silicon system that are still struggling to offer more than 20%.
In the form of a sun tracking dish, this csp system is very scalable and easily installed. Here are the advantages of a csp system over conventional solar pv technology.
Simple solar pv systems have dominated consumer sales as of late due to the low cost and almost zero maintenance.
