Novel CPV system fit for mass production, for electricity costs beyond grid parity and for applications in B2B, industrial and residential areas (CPV4ALL)
Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: Nov 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

CPV4ALL propose an innovative solution for concentration-based photovoltaic electricity beyond grid parity kWh prices and is oriented on short term results. CPV4ALL aims towards large scale replication in 2015 so that the demonstrated technologies will quickly lead to market deployment and thus significantly contribute to the EU energy and climate change policy (20-20-20 targets by 2020).CPV4ALL focuses on demonstrating and validating, at industrial scale, the production technology for the components and the assembly technology for the CPV modules and system. The developed CPV systems itself will undergo extensive evaluation programmes at test sites and real situations by CEA-INES.In order to realize the concepts and objectives described in the previous sections, a structure of six work packages has been defined. WP1 is focused on RTD activities and deals with the development and optimisation of the system components. In WP2-3-4 the necessary demonstration activities will be defined and developed. WP2 is dedicated to the demonstration of pilot line for the manufacturing of components and module assembly for volume > 100.000 modules/yr, while WP3 focuses on the demonstration of high-throughput manufacturing processes of critical system components for volume > 1 million units/yr.During WP4 will take place the demonstration and evaluation of CPV systems in various location (France, Austria, The Netherlands) and for various system configuration (Agricultural, Transport, Real estate, etc..). Dissemination activities under WP5 include also the preparation of a market deployment plan and the identification and selection of third parties. WP6 is dedicated to the project and risk management .
