EMCORE (EMKR) Introduces CPV Solar Power System In China

EMCORE Corporation announced that it has set up the first EMCORE concentrator photovoltaic system (CPV). The CPV system was set up in China with the help of XinAo Group. It is already installed and operational. Here is a little bit more information about the system, as well as future system installations in the Chinese market:

The deployed 50 kilowatt (kW) CPV system is power-driven by state-of-the-art, high-efficiency compound semiconductor-based multi-junction solar cells, operating with 500x concentration….Meanwhile, the two entities are in the midst of negotiating for the construction of a commonly-owned plant in the same Asian country, to produce EMCORE satisfied and designed CPV systems. This is meant to serve EMCORE Corporation’s innovative coal gasification project and the Chinese open market.

Also in the cards is EMCORE’s Generation III, a cost-effective next-generation system design, endowed with a module efficiency of approximately 30%. Capacity production of the enhanced design is scheduled to resume by mid-2009.–Justice, Sirikah, hotstocked.com
