Fresnel-Kohler: low-cost high-efficiency CPV concentrators

“The Fresnel Köhler (FK) technology has been applied to several commercial HCPV products, ranging from Ventana™ Optical Train, developed by LPI and Evonik jointly, and CPV systems for Pirelli, chroma Solar and BSQ solar”


LPI has extensive experience in the design and manufacture of state-of-the-art high-concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) systems. LPI has been the leading optical design/development partner in the development of HCPV systems with companies such as Boeing, Pirelli, Mitsui, Daido Steel, Chroma Solar, Azurspace and BSQ solar, among others. The performance and simplicity of LPI-patented HCPV optical systems, along with other practical advantages, enable both increased electricity production over the year and lower manufacturing costs, which are the key aspects to make these renewable systems competitive with conventional forms of electricity.
