    SOLAR PALM TREES

    Are “Palm Trees” The Next Step In Solar Energy’s Evolution?

    Gaurav Agnihotri, 1 September 2015 (Oil Price)

    “…[M]ore than 50 percent of the total investments in new electricity generation around the world was made in renewable energy…[and] the world invested around $150 billion into solar energy in 2014…There have been some interesting innovations in the field of solar energy sector, such as the creation of ‘community solar gardens’ in the United States…D Idea has recently launched a ‘smart palm’ solar tree that is providing free Wi-Fi, mobile charging docks and information through touch screen panels to the residents of Dubai, all through the power of sun…The ‘smart palm’ solar trees are nothing but tree shaped solar panels that are capable of generating close to 7.2 kWh per day of energy. The photovoltaic panels (with a leaf like shape) are capable of generating enough power to remain independent of the grid…The next generation of the solar palm will be 3D printed…[and could] have ATM machines and utility bill payment services…[T]hey are made of concrete and fiber re-enforced plastic, which makes them extremely practical and user friendly…” click here for more
