Solar Energy - Concentrating Solar Power - Solar  - CSP - Renewable Energy - Solar Thermal - CPV
The logic behind concentrating PV technology resides in the assumption that PV crystals are expensive. Therefore, do more with less and concentrate sunlit on those crystals using mirrors or lenses. Trouble with the theory is that PV crystals aren't that expensive anymore and a lot of CPV companies folded. Nonetheless, with higher energy densities comes higher energy conversion efficiencies - and a heat problem.
V3solar - a technology that defies  a category


Closer to an electric generator than a flat, static solar panel, the V3 Solar Spin Cell lowers the Total Cost of Ownership while increasing the "energy density", or the amount of power generated in a given footprint. This opens up new and significant market opportunities. V3Solar's mission is to invent, manufacture, and distribute innovative solar technology that serves humanity.
Semprius concentrating PV

Semprius delivers a unique high concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) module design that begins with its proprietary micro-transfer printing process. This process enables Semprius to use the world's smallest solar cell - approximately the size of a pencil point - to create solar modules with unmatched costs and performance advantages.


Solaris Synergy floating solar concentrators

Solaris Synergy's medium-concentration F-CPV system is based on proven and patented evaporation cooling technology that keeps silicon PV elements at a low and stable temperature (~86ºF / 30ºC) around the clock. As a result, the system generates new opportunities in the utilization of these silicon elements by increasing their power generation efficiency by up to 20%, enhancing their reliability, and extending their lifespan.


Solfocus Concentrating Photovoltaics


SolFocus has developed leading concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) technology which combines high-efficiency solar cells (approaching 40%) and advanced optics to provide solar energy solutions which are scalable, dependable and capable of delivering on the promise of clean, low-cost, renewable energy.

Concentrix Solar CPV

Concentrix Solar GmbH was founded in 2005 as a spin-off company of Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems. The company is located in Freiburg in Breisgau. Concentrix Solar further developed the Concentrator PV technology generated from many years of research work at Fraunhofer ISE and brought it from the laboratory to market ready products and advanced it into series production. Under the name FLATCON ® , we offer complete, turnkey concentrator photovoltaic power plants on the commercial level.


Energy Innovations Sunflower HCPV


From its founding in 2001, Energy Innovations believed in the promise of concentrated solar. Today we stand ready to realize that promise. With the introduction of our new Sunflower HCPV solution, we have harnessed the power of 1,200 suns to achieve an astounding 29% module efficiency. But we didn't stop there — with our holistic approach, we also created the world's simplest and lowest-cost HCPV solution to install.

Amonix Concentrated PV
Amonix is the leading designer and manufacturer of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) commercial solar power systems. Based on advanced photovoltaic solar cells developed for use in outer space, the Amonix commercial solar power system requires no water for power production and uses land more efficiently – all while producing more energy per acre than any other solar energy technology.


Green and Gold CPV


Green and Gold's solar strategy is to dramatically exceed the cost effectiveness of existing PV flat panels through focused innovations in both the effective collection of solar energy (peak kWs) and the generation of maximum annual electric power (kWhs). To execute this program, our design and development teams worked to create the innovative and ground breaking "SunCube™". 

Cyrium Technologies CPV

Advanced quantum dot nanotechnology high efficiency Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) cells at high concentration. Cyrium is committed to enabling the expansion and wide-spread acceptance of Concentrator Photovoltaics (CPV) and now offers the QDEC (Quantum Dot Enhanced Cell) product family of standard cell size products. In addition standard QDEC cells, Cyrium also provides cell performance optimization and customization services through the Application-Specific Concentrator Cells (ASCC).


Cool Earth Inflated Concentrator


Our inflated, balloon-shaped concentrators are key to Cool Earth's innovative design. When inflated with air, the concentrator naturally forms a shape that focuses or concentrates sunlight onto a PV cell placed at the focal point. This means we need fewer cells to produce a lot more electricity. In fact, a single cell in our concentrator generates about 300 to 400 times the electricity of a cell without a concentrator.

Sol3g HCPV System

Sol3g is one of the first companies at world-wide level in commercializing HCPV systems. The company centers its activity in the consultancy, investigation, manufacture and commercialization of third generation photovoltaic systems, particularly specialized in high concentration systems, non-imaging optics and advanced intelligent electro-mechanical tracking and control systems.


Solar Systems


The ultra-high efficiency concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) power generation system technology is based on the use of the company’s proprietary ‘Dense Array’ Convertor Technology which utilises the world’s highest efficiency triple junction (TJ) solar cells, capable of converting sunlight into electricity at around 40% efficiency.
