Transparent Solar Panels – The Future is Near

transparent solar cellLet’s face it. Solar panels as we all know it requires shading. One of the things that top our customer wish list is for us to experiment on solutions that require little to less shading.

Well apparently a Michigan State University research team has finally created a truly transparent solar panel. They have discovered a breakthrough that could soon bring possibilities where windows, panes of glass, and even entire buildings could be used to generate solar energy.

The Michigan State University research team explained that this technology is made possible by employing organic salts to absorb wavelengths of light that are already invisible to the human eye, a technology known as transparent luminescent solar concentrator (TLSC).  This technology solves the fundamental challenges of creating a transparent photovoltaic cell allows the ability to harness the power of infrared and ultraviolet light.

More recently, a new generation of transparent solar panel technology is being tested and developed by UK-funded industry group to implement this innovation on the construction of new age zero-carbon buildings.

It seems that windows and doors as solar panels harnessing energy to power our houses and our buildings is now within the reach of our technological abilities. Exciting times ahead in the solar industry.
