Ionova et al., "HCPV
modules with primary and secondary minilens panels," in Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Concentrating Photovoltaic (ICPV-6 '10), vol.
Semprius Inc, a developer of high concentration photovoltaic (HCPV
) solar modules, reported on Monday that it has won a new contract from Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne (PWR), part of United Technologies Corp (NYSE:UTX).
Depending on the specific location and irradiation, the HCPV
modules can deliver an energy output per square meter that is two times higher than common polycrystalline modules.
Opel International, a global supplier of high concentration photovoltaic (HCPV
) solar panels and solar tracker systems, has closed its previously announced brokered private placement.
According to Joe Budano, CEO of Energy Innovations, 'Achieving this world-leading efficiency is another example of the advantages our proprietary HCPV
recently has developed a breakthrough solar Concentrated Solar Photovoltaic (CPV) panel called the Sun Simba HCPV
, a new, high-efficiency, low-cost solar technology designed for utility scale applications.
Energy Innovations' flagship product line, the Sunflower HCPV
Solution, integrates photovoltaic modules, advanced tracking, unique power optimization, an embedded controller and wireless communication into one solution to produce cost-competitive solar power while also reducing installation and maintenance costs.
Other leading Spanish technologies at the summit will include Generalia's high accuracy PV suntrackers for solar plants and their launch product, Spintracker: the new cost competitive suntracker for HCPV
. Siliken is a leading turnkey system integrator for off-grid and on-grid solar PV systems.
Though still sourcing solar panel suppliers, Martin says the high-concentration photovoltaic system (HCPV
) installed will be a hydraulically-driven, two-axis tracking system to follow the sun.
As one example, the Arizona Public Service Company (APS) is planning the world's largest high- concentration solar photovoltaic (HCPV
) project, using commercially available technology that evolved from R and D supported in large part by EPRI during the late 1980s and '90s.
(APS), Arizona's longest-serving electric utility, plans to install the world's largest high-concentration photovoltaic (HCPV
) solar project using Amonix's patented technology.
REPHLECT project tackles both factors thanks to an innovative combination of advanced High Concentration PV (HCPV
) technology and a close to the end market model.HCPV, due to its use of very high efficiency PV cells, is currently the solar technology with the highest cost reduction potential (85% in the last 5 years).
