Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) technologies utilises precision optics and relies on high energy that generally exceeds the yield from conventional flat plate. This technology provides a solution to address the current shortcomings of non-favourable irradience conditions affecting solar power outputs. It will be a cost-effective option.
• Increased and more reliable power output compared to conventional photovoltaic flat plates
An affordable energy solution that is highly suited to South African weather conditions.
TRL 4: system validation in laboratory environment.
South African patent application was granted in 2015.
