  • Peak operating efficiency of 36.2% measured on March 14, 2013 with a DNI of 876 W/m2, an ambient temperature of 16°C and instantaneous wind speed of 1 m/s

A module showcasing Amonix’s latest-generation CPV technology has been in outdoor testing from late February to April of this year. During this period, the Amonix module demonstrated a peak operating efficiency of 36.2% measured on March 14, 2013 with a DNI of 876 W/m2, an ambient temperature of 16°C and instantaneous wind speed of 1 m/s, breaking the previous 34.2% peak efficiency set by Amonix in May 2012.

Over the entire testing period, the Amonix module earned a National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) This result continues Amonix’s long history of leading the world in solar module efficiency, having been the first to convert over 1/3rd of the sun’s energy in May 2012, and the first to break 30% module efficiency in 2011.
