Amonix Resets Bar for CPV Module Efficiency | Renewable Energy News Article

The new mark, measured in outdoor testing at NREL from late February to April, achieved an outdoor efficiency rating of 34.9 percent under "international standard operating conditions" for CPV: DNI of 900 W/m2 , 20°C ambient temperature, and 2 m/s wind speed. Peak efficiency for the new CPV module touched 36.2 percent on March 14 under a DNI of 876 W/m2 , ambient temperature of 16°C, and instantaneous wind speed of 1 m/s. Amonix's previous records were 33.5 percent efficiency rating and a peak of 34.2 percent. Amonix's new record CPV modules use the same-generation ~40 percent efficient Spectrolab CPV cells as they have for the past two years, with a cell-to-module conversion efficiency exceeding 90 percent, according to Amonix founder and CTO Vahan Garboushian . (Earlier this month Spectrolab unveiled a 37.8 efficient cell but that was multijunction, not CPV.) Amonix also...
