Holographic elements have several unique features that make them attractive for solar collector and concentrator systems. These properties include the ability to diffract light at large deflection angles, Bragg selectivity, grating multiplexing, and angle-wavelength matching. In this presentation we review how these properties can be applied to solar collection and concentrator systems. An algorithm is presented for analyzing the energy collection properties of holographic concentrators in specific geometries and is applied to a planar collection format. Holographic elements are shown to have advantages for low concentration ratio solar concentrator systems.
