The world's largest double concentration PV system - PV electricity for Southern Europe at lowest costs

Objective

The objective of the project is to produce a cost reduction of the PV energy. In order to obtain this objective, two concepts are taken into account: Concentration and Sun tracking.
1.-Concentration is based on reflecting part of the sun radiation over a flat PV panel by using one or two flat mirrors. This way, the panel receives all the radiation coming directly from the sun (and surroundings), and also the reflected radiation in the mirrors. Since mirror square meter cost is some orders of magnitude lower than that of flat PV panel, a cost reduction of the installed capacity is obtained.
2.-Two-axis sun tracking system collects between 35 and 48% more sun energy than a static system, depending on the geographical location. The size scale of each tracking system that will be used in the plant is around 90m2.
