A team of Michigan State University researchers has developed a technology that can turn transparent surfaces, from building windows to cell phones, into solar collecting surfaces – without obstructing the view. The research aims to integrate the use of solar power into the lives of people in a genuinely non-intrusive way. This technology is truly amazing!

A Fully Transparent Solar Cell That Could Make Every Window And Screen a Power Source!

Until now, solar cells of this kind have been only partially transparent and usually a bit tinted, but these are so clear that they’re practically indistinguishable from a normal pane of glass.

You could keep your phone charged whenever you are outdoors or in the sun, power gadgets inside your home, and power functions on your car such as air conditioning.

The top efficiency of these solar cells is only 5 to 7%. These numbers are low compared to ordinary solar cells, but if every window of a building is replaced with the transparent solar cell then the numbers quickly add up.
