Concentrator photovoltaics

CPV maximizes efficiency by using multiple optical elements such as mirrors and lenses to reflect light into a super concentrated beam that is aimed at a solar cell. Machinery adjusts the panels throughout the day so that the cells are exposed to a maximum amount of direct sunlight. The technique is similar to the way you would move a magnifying glass while burning your name into a piece of wood, explains Kurtz.
