The aim of combining solar cells with concentration systems is an attempt to reduce the cost of the electrical energy produced. The photovoltaic (PV) concentrators reduce the fraction of the cell's cost in the total system cost, by substituting the area of expensive cells by less expensive collectors.

Unlike the flat-plate photovoltaic systems seen on roofs, solar concentrators must track the sun to focus light on to a solar cell throughout the day. Sun tracking increases the daily energy production above.

Photovoltaics (PV) is the conversion of light into electricity using semiconducting materials that exhibit the photovoltaic effect, a phenomenon studied in physics, photochemistry, and electrochemistry. PV has become the cheapest source of electrical power in regions with a high solar potential, with price bids as low as US$/kWh in Panel prices have dropped by the factor of BSQ’s High Concentration Photovoltaic System (CPV) is the perfect warhorse for the new generation of Beyond-Shockley-Queisser record-efficiency photovoltaic cells.

With more than a decade of intensive field testing and thorough development in the lab, the BSQ solar CPV system combines high efficiency, high concentration, non-imaging optics. Despite its highest efficiency, concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology is still finding its way into the current photovoltaic market which is saturated with conventional flat-plate photovoltaic systems.
