Concentrating Photovoltaics – CPV – Ready for Take-Off?

CPV systems are poised for significant growth thanks to the confluence of several factors: Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) requiring up to 33% renewables by 2020 in key US states, higher efficiency CPV systems, and lower CPV system costs. In the last year alone, over 300 MW of CPV projects have signed contracts with utilities and are now awaiting regulatory approvals and financing.

Thanks to these large projects, CPV technology companies may be approaching the critical mass needed to cost-effectively manufacture their systems and compete head-to-head with non-concentrating PV.
