New Solar harvesting surfaces that revolutionise solar power as we know it

Researchers Develop Transparent Solar Concentrator 'Near-Infrared Harvesting Transparent Luminescent Solar Concentrators' - This technology could mean that one day entire skyscrapers might be able to generate solar power without blocking out light or ruining tenants' views. Continue Reading

Because solar panels are designed to accumulate as much light from the sun as possible, they're typically very dark in color. It makes them more efficient, but also kind of an eyesore, minimizing their adoption. So researchers at the University of Michigan have developed what they believe to be the world's first semi-transparent, colored solar panels. Read more
