"Window Socket" est une prise solaire de fenêtre. Elle convertit la lumière en électricité et permet d’alimenter de petits appareils électroniques. Le concept a été conçu par deux coréens : Kyuho Song & Boa Oh. Intensité de 1 000 mAh, un temps de charge de 5 à 8 heures et une autonomie d'utilisation de 10 heures. CK : pratique en voyage, mais ce n'est encore qu'un prototype. ^^
A Michigan State University research team has finally created a truly transparent solar panel — a breakthrough that could soon usher in a world where windows, panes of glass, and even entire buildings could be used to generate solar energy. .transparent solar cell
'Transparent Solar Panel' "Researchers at Michigan State University have created a solar panel that resembles typical glass, which can be placed on top of a window to collect solar energy, while still providing an unobstructed view. Called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator, the panel uses organic molecules made to absorb invisible wavelengths of light, such as ultraviolet and near infrared light." by KEVIN OHANNESSIAN techtimes.com
The Solaris Sun Shade is a solar-powered umbrella concept that provides shade while powering a laptop and other gadgets - using solar energy to create new work and leisure spaces with the sun. Designed by José Vicente, the system is equipped with photovoltaic panels that allow users to charge their electronics with clean, renewable energy from the sun while sitting at a beach, park or outdoor cafe.
#Solar Energy Homeowners "The Rocky Mountain Institute wants to drive efficient use of resources and unlock solutions for the mass market. They put together this stellar guide for homeowners to understand solar options available to them. They even present the average payback period for each item, from PV solar panels to solar pool covers!" #Infographic.
