EU and Japan team up to develop high efficiency CPV cells #energy #renewable #solar #CPV

The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO ) and the EU will jointly launch a project to develop concentrator photovoltaic cells aiming to achieve a cell conversion efficiency of more than 45%, which is the highest efficiency in the world, within four years. According to a recent press release the project will "address climate change and enhance energy security”, “through strategic coordination and bringing together the technologies and expertise of Japan and Europe”. Specifically, in addition to the development and assessment of solar cells and modules, new materials and new solar cell structures will be developed, and approaches to standardise measurement technology for concentrator photovoltaic cells will be explored. This project will be jointly conducted by industrial, academic and governmental research organizations from Japan and from si...
