Abstract:

The Projects objectives were to demonstrate to the Department of Defense DoD the reliability and cost-effectiveness of the CPV technology in a harsh desert climate with high Direct Normal Irradiance DNI, which means direct sunlight a majority of the year. Additionally, the solar forecasting system, a component of the Project, was intended to produce a direct, measurable benefit to the DoD by providing cost-effective ways to manage and distribute on-site solar generation, resulting in increased energy quality and security.
