Semprius and Siemens Industry have entered into a joint development agreement to co-develop plug-and-play demonstration systems based on Semprius’ solar module arrays and Siemens’ automation and control components. The systems will be installed at test sites around the world, including major utilities, commercial sites, international test locations and government facilities.
Siemens will integrate its components with Semprius PV module arrays, and together the companies will implement the test systems to validate performance of the combined technologies.
“Our PV module arrays will make the generation of solar power economically viable in clear, sunny climates found in many parts of the world,” said Joe Carr, Semprius president and CEO. “We are excited about teaming with Siemens to demonstrate the value of this technology.”
“Competitive project deployment cost for CPV will be the key for the success of this technology. Combining Siemens’ advanced automation and control equipment with Semprius Module Arrays has the potential to deliver electricity at grid level prices to both industrial and utility scale customers,” said Peter Krause, business segment manager at Siemens.
