Energie solaire : de nouvelles perspectives

MIT researchers have developed a solar concentrator process for capturing sunlight over the entire surface of a glass sheet and to concentrate the energy thus collected on the edges thereof. According to Science and Life "coating the glazing is not expensive and easily supports surface irregularities. The coating is an organic ink which is deposited by a printing process on a very regular glass.

In this way, any glazing can be designed to pass 10% of the light and convert the rest electricity. "This system, operating with a reduced number of cells would also simplify and reduce the production cost of traditional solar panels. A rich technological breakthrough promises that the first applications are expected to emerge by 3 years. .. and if the windows bringing longer view and light but were involved in the building's energy supply?
