cpv technology

Following the sun. A Concentrating Photovoltaic (CPV) system converts light energy into electrical energy in the same way that conventional photovoltaic technology does, but uses an advanced optical system to focuses a large area of sunlight onto each cell for maximum efficiency. CPV panels are mounted on trackers to keep the focal point on the cell as the sun moves across the sky.

10th International Conference on Concentrating Photovoltaic Systems

10th International Conference on Concentrating Photovoltaic Systems

CPV-10 is the premier technical conference in the areas of high- and low-concentration PV components, modules, and tracker-based CPV systems. The conference provides an opportunity for technologists, financiers, academics, and students to engage in discussion of the state-of-the-art CPV components, trackers, and installations. Attendees will engage in a series of oral discussions and interactive sessions, as well as a technical tour of nearby commercial CPV installations and test sites to provide a practical perspective.
