Concentrating photovoltaics Technology (CPV)  has become a relevant technology for solar energy conversion. Especially under high concentration, the use of  cost-effective, high-efficiency multi-junction solar cells enable high system efficiencies and a competitive levelized cost of electricity in regions with a large fraction of direct irradiance. However, the development of this technology requires the utilization of specific indoor/outdoor characterization techniques that are not yet widely known. A review of current hot topics in indoor/outdoor CPV characterization in energy and performance testing will be presented and discussed during this short SOPHIA on line course.
