|Livermore, California, United States||Alive / Active||Cool Earth Solar works on the development of concentrated photovoltaic cell (CPV) system. Instead of using rigid aluminum or glass structures to focus light, the company uses metallized plastic films. And, instead of using ribs, trusswork, or material heft to maintain the mirror shape, the company use active inflation air. The company also actively water cool the company's photovoltaic cells to remove waste heat in contrast to the large, material-intensive heat spreaders and sinks used by most ...Show all||Login to see details|
|Ontario, Canada||Alive / Active||The Power-Spar is a high efficiency solar concentrator that can be configured for electricity, heat, cooling and/or lighting solutions. The Power-Spar system consists of a parabolic trough reflector which concentrates the sun's energy onto a modular absorber. The absorber converts the sun's energy to electricity (via high efficiency multi-sun photovoltaic cells), or to heat (via a patented absorption surface) or transports the light to the buildings' interior (via optical cabling). The system i...Show all||Login to see details|
