Highly efficient triple-junction photovoltaic cells are combined with novel tailored imaging and non-imaging concentrator optics, to provide a scalable approach to cost-effective concentrator solar PV systems. The two designs presented are scaleable in that they are arrays of small concentrating elements, which can be tailored in size to suit a range of manufacturing and installation practices. They are both appropriate for commercial rooftop or large, utility scale rollout and have been designed with safety and low cost of energy production as primary targets. This paper is an update on their progress from conception to commercialization.
