A new joint report from NREL and Fraunhofer takes a look at recent data concerning the development of the CPV industry and suggests that big strides in products, costs and performance have been made.  Costs especially are coming down at an impressive clip, reaching LCOE as low as $0.11 in sunny areas, today.  Since the global CPV product is still small, there is still plenty of learning curve to travel, meaning costs could easily go much lower.

A great article on how CPV is finding novel ways to continue to grow the industry. Also some great updates on how top CPV companies are gaining customers, installing product and growing the installed base. The article also points out a real virtue of CPV products, stating that “CPV in today’s solar market is only at a slight premium to Si PV, without having experienced the benefits of economies of scale/ learning curve. If CPV had enjoyed the same volume of production as Si PV, there is little doubt that it would be the most cost effective utility scale solution available.”
