Solar Energy Power Systems

Solar Energy Power Systems

Concurrent Design provides solar energy engineering, design, and build services. Its solar energy product development expertise may be applied in numerous ways to generate high power solar systems. This may include direct applications such as product development of single product, high power, solar systems; large two-axis tracking systems; CPV systems; or novel applications for new solar markets including floating photovoltaics (Floatovoltaics®). This may also include indirect applications such as leveraging smaller and simpler solar products through high volume manufacturing (HVM). Concurrent Design has provided solar energy product design and development and solar energy manufacturing engineering services related to crystalline silicon, thin films (CIGS and amorphous silicon) and triple-junction solar (III-V) cells. By virtue of its depth and breadth of experience in many solar applications, Concurrent Design brings a unique advantage to the development of your solar power system.
