Telecom companies like Verizon and Comcast are have developed this technology and are marketing it aggressively as a triple-play upgrade for residential and business customers (high speed internet, cable television, and phone service).

  Highest efficiency of any solar technology

Emcore's solar technology has the highest conversion rate of sunlight to energy of any commercially available solar technology. Efficiency is a major concern for solar energy's long-term viability, so this is a major advantage for Emcore as it attempts to differentiate itself from other competitors in the solar energy space. Many believe Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV) technology offers the next stage in the evolution of solar power. Emcore has created an improved CPV technology that provides a greater amount of energy per square surface area at a lower overall cost than that of it's competitor's CPV, First Solar (FSLR).
