what is hcpv?

The HCPV technology

HCPV is the abbreviation of High Concentrated Photovoltaic.

HCPV is a CPV system with a concentration ratio (surface area of a Fresnel lens divided by the area of one solar cell) of more than 300 suns.

The CPV technology started in 2005 and represents the third-generation PV technology after C-Si (crystalline silicon) and thin film.

It adopts III-V Multi-junction Solar Cells instead of Silicon solarcells.

It requires solar tracking systems, and is suitable for utility scale power plants in areas with abundant solar resources.
