As the Photovoltaic Industry is growing at a rapid rate, module manufacturers are constantly starting up new strategies and looking for innovative materials that reduce costs and increase effectiveness.
After a long time of research, the Concentrating Photovoltaic (CPV) technology has experienced a remarkable development, as it uses lens able to focus the light onto small high-efficiency cells in order to maximize the performance and reduce the cost per watt.
These Concentration modules offer high energy yield (kWh/installed kW); higher efficiency, allowing smaller module area; lower product costs, because of the reduction of semiconductor material; lower installation costs, and excellent performance in late afternoon.
AT4 wireless has recently been accredited by ENAC (Entidad Nacional de Acreditación in Spain) so as to perform testing according to the IEC 62108 Standard for Concentration Photovoltaic Modules.
From now on, CPV module manufacturers can rely on the support of AT4 wireless, laboratory with more than 20 years of experience in testing and certification, in order to carry out the IEC 62108 testing that will let their modules to obtain TÜV Nord Certification, ETL for USA, and CEC (California Energy Commission in United States of America) Certification.
"AT4 wireless continues its commitment to Photovoltaic industry and goes one step further with this new accreditation that will let our clients' modules to meet the latest requirements to reach the global market" said José Manuel Gómez Galván, Photovoltaic Laboratory Manager.
