Abstract

In this editorial, we report on the conclusions of a concentrator photovoltaics (CPV) industry group convened in July 2012 to develop pathways to large-scale CPV deployment, specifically targeting the installation of 100 GW of CPV in the United States by 2030. The group identified technical and financial barriers to this goal and developed a corresponding set of recommendations for overcoming these barriers. These recommendations focus on technical improvements at the system and cell levels and on activities needed to support the commercialization.
