A complete solar thermophotovoltaic system has been developed and tested outdoors. We have measured an overall conversion efficiency of about 0.8%, which to our knowledge, is the first solar-to-electricity efficiency reported for this kind of system. Details about the system development and characterization are given throughout the paper. Besides, we justify that an efficiency of 5% is attainable in the very short-term and that efficiencies above 10% are plausible in the mid-term with further improvements.
