SolFocus, a provider of concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) solar energy solutions, has signed a $103 million agreement with EMPE Solar to install over 10 MW of CPV solar energy projects in several sites across southern Spain by the end of 2010.
This project will be the largest deployment of CPV technology in Europe and will be capable of meeting the domestic energy requirements for a city of approximately 40,000 residents, the companies note.
The SolFocus CPV system is 95% recyclable and is composed primarily of aluminum and glass. The technology also offers the lowest carbon footprint of any solar energy solution.
