Paper Abstract

With PV module prices low and flat-plate technology dominating the market, the solar industry has taken a hard turn away from concentrator PV systems, which has faced high cost barriers. Despite this, there may still be space for CPV products and concepts to contribute, but these advantages are best realized by aggressively rethinking the way we design PV concentrators.
