National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) - National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) Demonstration (Solar Technology Acceleration Center, Aurora, Colorado); NREL Tracking Number 10-035
CX(s) Applied: A9, A11, B1.3
Location(s): Aurora, Colorado
Office(s): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Golden Field Office
The proposed project would be for a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) to demonstrate and quantitatively compare performance of concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) systems installed in Japan and in the United States. In the United Stated, two CPV systems, one comparison silicon photovoltaic array and support infrastructure would be installed at the Solar Technology Acceleration Center (SolarTac) facility in Aurora, Colorado.
