Concentrator Photovoltaics (CPV) is one of the most promising technologies to produce solar electricity at competitive prices. High performing CPV systems with efficiencies well over 30% and multi-megawatt CPV plants are now a reality. As a result of these achievements, the global CPV market is expected to grow dramatically over the next few years reaching cumulative installed capacity of 12.5 GW by 2020. In this context, both new and consolidated players are moving fast to gain a strategic advantage in this emerging market.

Written with clear, brief and self-contained technical explanations, Handbook of Concentrator Photovoltaic Technology  provides a complete overview of CPV covering: the fundamentals of solar radiation, solar cells, concentrator optics, modules and trackers; all aspects of characterization and reliability; case studies based on the description of actual systems and plants in the field; environmental impact, market potential and cost analysis.

CPV technology is at a key point of expansion. This timely handbook aims to provide a comprehensive assessment of all CPV scientific, technological and engineering background with a view to equipping engineers and industry professionals with all of the vital information they need to help them sustain the impetus of this encouraging technology.

Key features:

  • Uniquely combines an explanation of the fundamentals of CPV systems and components with an overview of the market place and their real-life applications.
  • Each chapter is written by well-known industry specialists with extensive expertise in each particular field of CPV technology.
  • Reviews the basic concepts of multi-junction solar cells and new concepts for CPV cells, highlighting the key differences between them.
  • Demonstrates the state of the art of several CPV centres and companies.
  • Facilitates future cost calculation models for CPV.
  • Features extensive case studies in each chapter, including coverage of CPV modules and systems.

About the Author:

Carlos Algora received his B.Sc. degree in Physics in 1986 and his PhD in Physics in 1990, both from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. He joined the Solar Energy Institute of the Technical University of Madrid in 1985 where he became Associate Professor in 1991 and a Full Professor in 2008. Since 1996 he has been the head of the III-V Semiconductors Group, which is devoted to the modelling, technology, characterization and reliability of III-V solar cells. Together with his team he has helped to develop several World efficiency record concentrator cells. He has been the main researcher of more than 40 R&D projects, has published more 230 scientific papers and has authored several book chapters.

Ignacio Rey-Stolle is an Associate Professor at the Solar Energy Institute of the Technical University of Madrid, where he obtained his PhD in 2001. During his scientific career he has accumulated more than 17 years working in the field of high efficiency concentrator solar cells, during which he has contributed to several efficiency records. His research activities encompass the whole life cycle of concentrator solar cells, including design and simulation, epitaxial growth, fabrication, characterization and reliability studies. Ignacio Rey-Stolle has co-authored more than 100 scientific papers, three book chapters and one patent.
