Researchers at the Michigan State University discovered a way to make clear colorless solar panels. Traditional solar panels use visible light however these new solar panels would use organics salts to capture non-visible light such as ultra violet. The panels would then transfer the energy to the edges of the panels which would still contain the more traditional solar panels and convert it into useable energy. They predict that these solar panels could be used on building windows and other areas with high light that require a transparent surface. Maybe car windshields? What would you like to see these used for? I would also like to know more about the cost efficiency.
