SOLAR PANELS IN THE SAHARA COULD DAMAGE GLOBAL CLIMATE

  The world’s most forbidding deserts could possibly be the most effective locations on Earth for harvesting solar energy – probably the most considerable and clear supply of power we now have. Deserts are spacious, comparatively flat, wealthy in silicon – the uncooked materials for the semiconductors from which photo voltaic cells are made — […]

SMARTPHONES COULD BE CHARGED BY INVISIBLE SOLAR PANELS HIDDEN IN SCREEN, SCIENTISTS SAY

  Smartphones in the future could be powered by invisible solar panels built into the device’s screen. Adding the ability to charge from the Sun, by using the glass in the screen, has long been a dream of phone users. But the materials to make it practically possible are lacking, making such technology difficult to […]
