Green power generation from Urine

Green electricity from Urine. Light reduces the risk in refugee camps

The “pee-power” will be a big advantage for refugee camps. Most of the refugees don’t have any electricity: that leads to unsafe situations. Light will reduces the risk of abuse.

University of Bristol researchers are testing a new way to generate energy: generating electricity from urine.

How does this technique work exactly and what are its benefits? Read More

Transparant Solar Cells

Transparant Solar Cells

The solar harvesting system uses small organic molecules developed by Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering and his team to absorb specific non-visible wavelengths of sunlight.

A transparant layer over our windows which generates energy, is that possible? Yes!
A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that, if placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window.

Fluorescent Dye Boosts Solar Cell Efficiency by a Whopping 38%

Solar is booming. Trending Solar Technologies are organic or plastic solar cells with nano technology. But there is more. Read all about the trending technologies.

A lot of the excitement now is about using the principles of photonics to manage light waves in the most efficient way. 

There are perhaps hundreds of groups in the world working on this. We introduce you to new, breakthrough technologies. As prices are lowering: panel prices below 65 cents per watt
