The core of HIPERION project is a disruptive solar photovoltaic (PV) module technology, based on the planar optical micro-tracking, which concentrates sunlight on multi-junction solar cells on top of a conventional silicon backplane, integrated within a static frame.
This innovative module architecture achieves more than 30% efficiency under direct sunlight, while still harvesting diffuse sunlight with its underlying PV backplane.
Compatible with any type of installation from rooftop to ground-mounted trackers, the solution produces up to 50% more energy than conventional c-Si modules with the same form-factor.
