In growing solar markets such as Latin America, and the Middle East. Soitec are about to open a new factory in California and companies are increasingly investing time developing project and manufacturing facilities far from their HQ.

According to reports 27% of CPV market share by 2015 and with projects deployed at a much larger scale higher volumes could see CPV system costs greatly depreciating especially with increased standardisation.

However the challenge remains, can companies actually make these commercialisation and bankability milestones, when faced with commercialisation chicken and egg problems?
