Here’s How Transparent Solar Panels Could Replace Windows in The Future

Transparent solar panels, to be clear, sound too good to be true. They may instantly transform cities from significant energy consumers to energy producers, ushering in a new era of clean energy revolution while preserving farms and natural habitats.

Solar energy should clearly be one of our biggest allies as the world works towards a low-carbon future to mitigate the worst effects of climate change.

How practical are transparent solar technologies, though? Could we actually produce power through windows in homes, businesses, cars, or even on smartphones?

A technology called transparent solar collects and uses light energy through windows or any other glass surface, no matter the angle. It could revolutionise the solar industry by extending its application. Engineers have developed a variety of transparent solar technology platforms.

The bulk of them, however, primarily serve as transparent solar concentrators, which means they are designed to capture particular UV and infrared light wavelengths that are not readily apparent to the naked eye and convert them into energy suitable for electrically charging electronics.
