高集光太陽電池(HCPV)への注目 Putting High-Concentrating Photovoltaics into Focus
出版日: 2012年06月04日 ページ情報: 英文 27 Pages
概要

当レポートでは、高集光太陽電池(HCPV)市場について調査し、市場情勢、コスト構造、発電コスト、および効率の向上やスケールメリットなどコスト削減要因などについて分析しており、概略下記の構成でお届けいたします。

エグゼクティブサマリー

  • 材料集約的システムにも関わらず、HCPVはCAGR31%で拡大
  • 効率の向上およびスケールメリットがHCPVをMc-Si(多結晶シリコン)の射程内へ運ぶ−しかし期待されるほどすぐにではない

情勢

  • これまで、集光型太陽熱発電は苦戦−しかし、HCPVは手ぐすねを引いて待つ
  • HCPVのTAMは、2011年から2017年の期間中、CAGR31%で急成長する予測
  • HCPVは現在手に入る最先端・高価な太陽電池を利用
  • 光学系はHCPVモジュールの中核、しかし改善の余地あり
  • HCPVモジュールはすべての断片をつなぎあわせる
  • HCPVは今後、大きな問題に直面
  • まとめ

分析

  • HCPV効率・性能が向上するため、組み込みシステムのコストは減少する
  • HCPVのシステムコストおよびLCOE(発電コスト)は−2017年以降にx-Si(結晶シリコン) と競合

展望

Product Code: LRSSI-R-12-2

With subsidies for solar evaporating in developed, highly-penetrated markets, emerging markets with high solar resources will see demand grow at unprecedented rates. The shifting dynamic opens the door for high-concentrating photovoltaics (HCPV), as it is projected to display the fastest relative growth when compared with incumbent photovoltaic (PV) technologies. In this report, we take a close look at the cost structure and the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of HCPV systems with four different optics types and consider the factors that can reduce costs, such as efficiency improvements, economies of scale, and increased access to project capital. Considering current market trends, expect to see HCPV fully competitive with crystalline silicon technology on an LCOE basis before 2020 - though whether any firms will remain alive to compete then is in question.
