A team of researchers wants to turn windows into viable solar panels. Windows of homes and office buildings could one day generate solar energy via transparent solar cells, according to research conducted by scientists at Michigan State University. New technologies could revolutionize traditional solar windows. While glass windows generating solar power isn’t anything new, the trouble is that these windows traditionally have light-absorbing films embedded in their glass, which removes their transparency. Instead, they have a brown or reddish tint. Although this lack of transparency maximizes their efficiency to convert…
