Emcore Corp has announced its first deployment of a concentrator photovoltaics (CPV) system in China with the XinAo Group, one of China’s energy companies. As part of an earlier agreement, the 50kW test and evaluation system is fully installed and operational, and is producing power in accordance with specifications.

The parties continue to have discussions regarding the possible construction of a joint-owned plant in China, to manufacture CPV systems designed and certified by Emcore for its coal gasification project and the Chinese market.

In early October, Emcore was also granted access permits for its 850kW commercial solar park installation in the Extremedora region of Spain. In addition to these two deployments, the company expects several other pilot sites to be deployed by the end of the year.
