Concentrix Solar has concluded a global alliance with Johnson Controls in order to identify and respond to commercial opportunities for the project development and construction of utility-scale solar energy facilities. Johnson Controls will build, operate, maintain and provide lifecycle support for solar installations using Concentrix CPV (concentrator photovoltaic) technology.
“Before forming our alliance with Concentrix Solar, we studied all primary solar technologies and market participants. We concluded that the combination of Soitec’s technical capabilities in engineered substrate solutions and Concentrix Solar’s module design together provides the market leading solution for solar power generation in high DNI regions around the world,” said Iain Campbell VP and GM of global energy and workplace solutions at Johnson Controls.
“We are delighted to team up with Johnson Controls, who shares our vision for sustainable and economically viable, solar renewable energy,” said André-Jacques Auberton-Hervé, chairman and CEO at Soitec. “Together, we understand the market opportunity and positive environmental impact that solar renewable energy power will bring to both existing and future facilities, and are excited to provide integrated solutions to our customers.”
