While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    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
