CPV technology exploit know-how from Airlight Energy CSP experience and aerospace application:
1. The solar radiation is concentrated several hundred times on special PV cells by means of two concentrators.
2. The electricity is directly generated thanks to photovoltaic effect.
3. The PV cells are cooled through a water circuit in order to maintain steadyoperation temperature.
4. The hot water resulting from the cooling process is then available for further applications, such as space heating, air conditioning, ecc.
