Researchers begin experimenting with balloons that produce solar energy

Research team believes that balloons could be used as effective solar energy generators Researchers from the French National Center for Scientific Research and NextPV, a French-Japanese laboratory, are looking into a new way to generate solar energy. The research team, lead by Jean-Francois Guillemoles, director of the French National Center for Scientific Research, believes that solar power could be generated without having to account for weather patterns. Weather can play a major role in solar energy generation, as storm fronts can block sunlight, thereby making solar panels much less productive…
