Report: CPV Installations to Top 1 GW Per Year by 2015: This was the year that concentrated photovoltaic (CPV)...

This was the year that concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) started to get some real traction. Despite the enormous amount of press and VC funding for CPV's potential, the market has not translated that potential to actual steel in the ground and electrons in wires. That might be changing. While the CPV market is currently just a small portion of the world’s total installed solar base at just 28 megawatts of the total 33,000 megawatts, CPV technology is finally gaining momentum with multiple utility-scale project announcements over the past year. This growing pipeline of CPV would seem a vote of confidence from solar developers for a technology that, to date, has been marginalized because it was considered unproven and risky. GTM Research just published a report, Concentrating Photovoltaics 2011: Technology, Costs and Markets , that looks at the competitive dynamics affecting g...
