Abstract
This paper describes a development program which uses sunlight concentration techniques to effect an immediate reduction in cost-per-unit power for photovoltaic systems in which solar cell cost dominates the total system cost. Current examples of concentrator solar cell technologies are single crystal silicon and gallium arsenide. Implementation of cost reductions by the use of sunlight concentration is not dependent on the development of low-cost, mass-production cell technologies but emphasizes high cell efficiency and low-cost concentrator systems.
