Active systems, such as solar thermal and photovoltaic offer a great potential in reducing of fuel energy consumption. To improve the sustainability of buildings, one of the challenges is to address the role of renewable energies. Today, the photovoltaic installations play an important role in creating solar renewable energy. They create 2000 MW electrical energy per year and its annual global sales grown to approximately 5.6 GWp. This paper presents a general overview on a serious effort to

Furthermore, thin film technology benefits, the method of the most absorbing of solar spectrum and the method of solar concentration and the advantages of these systems are presented. Ultimately, a new high concentration PV power system will be assessed.
