Building on all the learnings of the HIPERION first generation (GEN1) modules, which were deployed on several pilot installations at the premises of consortium partners UPM, in Madrid, and Fraunhofer, in Freiburg, and extensively characterized, the HIPERION second generation modules (GEN2) were developed.
The GEN2 module represents a major upgrade in several ways: the transmission of the optical layer is increased, the sun tracking range is extended and reliability improved. GEN2 is ready for production, and HIPERION partners are looking forward to building these modules that will achieve 30% of efficiency for rooftop installations.
