Floating Solar farms
Floating solar farms can generate huge amounts of energy without using valuable land or real estate. They are on the water so we could use the land for better things like forest and buildings.
BIPV solar technology
Building-integrated photovoltaics, as the name suggests, seamlessly blend into building architecture in the form of roofs, canopies, curtain walls, facades, and skylight systems. Unlike traditional solar PV panels, BIPV can be aesthetically appealing rather than a compromise to a building’s design.
Solar skins will have a cover over the solar panels that match your roof so they’re less noticeable. Solar skin panels can also be beneficial for businesses or government offices. They can be customized to display business logos, business advertisements, a country’s flag, and so on.
Researchers are developing solar fabrics with a vision of including solar power in each fiber. These solar filaments can be embedded into your t-shirts, winter coats, or any other clothing to help you keep warm, power your phone, and provide energy for other needs while you’re on the go.
