At the building roof of the Applied Energy Research Centre - CREA, which belongs to the Higher Polytechnic School - EPS of the University of Lleida, it is located the experimental facility for testing concentrating technoligies. It covers the characterization of different systems as concentrating photovoltaics, concentrating thermal, concentrating solar power and concentrating hybrid photovoltaic – thermal. Special attention relies on the design and performance analysis of building integrated concentrating systems, either on façades or roof-mounted.


Two facilities are permanently installed to characterise solar concentrators:
