Descrizione:

APOLLON proposal concerns the optimisation and development of Point focus and Mirror Based Spectra Splitting photovoltaic concentrating (CPV) systems (multi-approach). The different technology paths will be followed with due focalisation on the recognised critical issues related to each system component in order to increase CPV efficiency, assure reliability, reduce cost and environmental impact. MJ solar cells will be manufactured by using new materials and deposition technologies allowing reaching and even surpassing the MJ solar cell efficiency target set on the European Strategic Research Agenda on Concentration Photovoltaics. Optimisation of Fresnel and Prismatic lens along with the development of new non-imaging, low F/#, high concentration, cell self-protecting stable optics will allow getting high optical efficiency and wide acceptance angles. New concepts will be applied for Mirror based spectra splitting systems which will allow eliminating the cooling needs. Both the optimised and the new technologies will be properly tested to get reliable a long life time CPV systems.
