Can you imagine never having to charge your cell phone or computer again? What if the windows on your house provided free electricity for your family? That day might be closer than you think with the help of solar cells.
Silicon Valley startup Ubiquitous Energy is leading solar powered innovation. They’re creating the world’s first transparent solar cells. Without needing the vast wealth of space used for solar panels, transparent solar cells create an invisible film that can be applied over existing glass panels in cell phones, computers, or windows. The resulting effect, an easy to apply energy source, could very well tip the scale in the current energy crisis.
In the field of solar powered innovation, this invention is right up there with the creation of the world’s first solar road in the Netherlands or the first solar airplane to make a trip around the world. It’s pretty amazing what technology has been able to do and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
No matter which way you look at it, the world is right on its way to a cleaner, greener future.
