About Project

APOLLON Project

Multi-Approach for high efficiency integrated and intelligent concentrating PV module systems

 

Project Objectives

  • Optimisation and development of point focus and mirror based spectra splitting photovoltaic concentrating (CPV) systems
  • Increase of CPV efficiency, reliability while minimising costs and environmental impacts

 

Solar Capture Technologies’ achievements to date

  • Initial silicon cell technology produced
  • DOE experimentation completed into emitter and nitride effects on performance
  • Concentration testing and characterisation of initial technologies
  • Second generation of cell under design development
  • Design and demonstration of a front contact design suitable for automated assembly using wire bonding
