Abengoa Solar begins commercializing cutting-edge CPV system with a 28% efficiency rate

This proprietary technology, developed through Abengoa Solar’s expertise with high-concentration photovoltaic installations, yields higher performance and lower per-kilowatt generating cost, resulting in a record low Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE). It is also simpler to manufacture and assemble.

The electric power generation system consists of a high-concentration module and high-precision tracking and control systems. The module uses triple-junction III-V cells with 39% efficiency, similar to those used in space. These cells, when coupled with a state-of-the-art optic design, achieve better results than other systems used in locations with high temperatures.

This technology can be installed on rooftop and other sites with little visual impact, as well as into utility-scale solar plants with high-precision trackers.

Abengoa Solar focuses its activity on the development and application of technologies for generating electrical power from the sun. (www.abengoasolar.com).
