    The Secret To See-Through Solar

    Transparent Solar Panels Slated To Innovate Green Energy; Researchers developed transparent solar panels that will turn every window into a power source: here’s how they did it.

    Mariana Cid de Leon Ovalle, November 2017 (BOSS Magazine)

    “…[T]ransparent solar panels have a way to go before making it to market…[but a new technology brings that closer. To date] the way a solar panel works has made it essentially impossible for transparent solar panels to exist…[because] photovoltaic solar cells produce energy by absorbing sunlight and turning it into electricity. This means that in order for a solar panel to work it needs to be visible enough to absorb light, which would not happen with transparent material because the light would just pass through it…[To realistically address this challenge, researchers changed] the way solar panels absorb light by creating what they call a transparent luminescent solar concentrator (TLSC)…[It] uses organic salts to absorb any infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths of the solar spectrum. Once it harnesses infrared light, its luminescent glow is directed to the edge of the glass…[Thin strips of solar cells lining the edge of the glass [convert] solar energy to electricity…Transparent solar panels would be a total game changer…[In 2015, the TLSC’s efficiency was around 1 percent, which the team thinks can be scaled up to 10 percent once productions begins…” click here for more
