Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV) is an attractive alternative to fossil fuels due to its ability to reduce the PV cell area and increase the energy outputs using low cost optics. This review paper, details the recent experimental and simulation studies conducted in the field related to CPV in the past few years. The paper details the general expressions used for experimental works, followed by sections detailing the studies conducted on the optics, photovoltaics, heat dissipation and integration application. Different designs proposed by the researchers has also been briefly described. The findings shows the potential for CPV and CPV/T systems is promising with overall efficiencies greater than 60%. © 2018 Institution of Engineering and Technology. All rights reserved.
