Solar panels are an efficient method for capturing renewable energy. But while using solar panels offers significant environmental benefits, they also pose drawbacks. The YouTube video, “Pros and Cons of Solar Windows,” documents how Ubiquitous Energy plans to solve the drawbacks associated with solar panels with the development of solar glass windows.
While Ubiquitous Energy isn’t the first company to develop solar glass, they’ve adopted a different approach that involves a technology that crafts solar glass using organic light-absorbing dyes. Solar glasses developed with this technology are the only kind that can absorb invisible light.
The solar glasses developed by Ubiquitous Energy do not have the drawbacks associated with traditional solar panels or solar glasses developed by other companies with power cells. Instead, it offers great transparency and excellent energy efficiency.
Although the energy efficiency of solar glasses is still inferior to that of traditional solar panels, its potential for wider use can make up for that. For example, skyscrapers with great vertical space on the roof can generate 20 times the power of traditional solar panels.
Solar glasses represent a significant alternative to traditional solar panels, and their potential for widespread use is exciting.
