Innovative technology

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.

>30%

Efficiency

This innovative module architecture achieves more than 30% efficiency under direct sunlight, while still harvesting diffuse sunlight with its underlying PV backplane.

+50%

More Energy

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.

Hiperion Objectives

  • Bring to industry highly efficient hybrid solar modules which combine PV and CPV technologies.
  • Deliver unique and highly efficient solar modules capable of providing real-time record of energy generation per m2, between 50% and 80% depending on weather conditions.
  • Perform technical and economical assessments at several commercial pilot sites across Europe.
