Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the concentrating solar technologies used for utility-scale solar power. Specifically, it explains the rationale behind the use of concentration for photovoltaic modules, and how concentrating photovoltaic technologies compare with concentrating solar thermal technologies. It describes innovations in both areas, and how they are addressing the cost challenges to meet the needs of the utility scale market.
