A new environmental technology on the database (Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV))
Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. provides Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV).
This power generation system is suitable for high solar radiation (DNI >6.5) and high temperature areas. The module of this system is approximately twice as efficient as conventional silicon photovoltaic systems. With the solar panels installed high above the ground, the system provides usable space below the panels. The CPV system is expected to become the next-generation photovoltaic generator.
