SOLARE 2014 - Electricity from solar energy

The photovoltaic research activities in the RSE Piacenza laboratory are in full swing: with the project CPVMatch the goal is to develop multi junction solar cells with record efficiency. The contribution includes information on CPV technology and the European project

There is a novel technological frontier on which Europe, with Italy, is in the forefront: it is concentrated photovoltaic (CPV, Concentrated photovoltaic).

At Piacenza there is a laboratory, opened in 2011 which has already accomplished the ambitious European program Apollon, where a dozen engineers are developing the photovoltaic applications of the future, in particular under the new three-year project CpvMatch. The paper reports experiments on materials and market developments.
