Humans tend to accept any concept when they visualize the concept in reality with a strong example. When someone talks about solar energy, every human brain designs a pattern in their creative mind where they see a solar panel installed on the rooftop. We accept this thinking process as our minds are trained to think about the past.
Technology holds the potential to bring changes in any field of work. Same goes for solar energy. Several experiments are being conducted throughout the world to decrease the cost of solar energy installation and increase the capacity of creating electricity.
Researchers and developers have been successful in implementing a few technologies that can embark on revolutionary changes in solar energy utilization for the well-being of humans.
Here are some of the technologies that we feel will create a trend in 2020 and a revolution in solar energy utilization for electricity creation.
Additionally, it will help us understand the importance of solar energy and might change our concept of solar panels and its installation. Our approach towards solar energy consumption might shift on the positive side with it.
You may feel we have misspelled the word. But no, it is the correct word.
Silicon panels that are used in the conversion of solar energy into electrical energy are becoming efficient and cheaper as time is passing. As per one research, there is a considerable increase in the efficiency and effectiveness of these Silicon panels if they come in contact with any water bodies. Along with these advantages, many other benefits are associated with it.
Researchers installed these Silicon panels above the water bodies or water reservoirs and tested them. They found that results were quite appreciable, and there was a considerable 10% increase in power production.
Additionally, floating Silicon panels reduced land consumption to a great extent. In a way, even water management was possible with this Floatovoltaics. Water evaporation was reduced, and the creation of algae was reduced too.
A lot of experiments are still in process that might bring other revolutionary changes in this particular technology. As such, Floatovoltaics hold the capacity to become trending in the present and coming years.
How awesome is it when solar panels are installed in integration with the building architecture. Supposedly, there is a curtain wall. This technology will integrate with the curtain wall in a way, where your beauty is never compromised, as well as your cost of installing solar panels on the rooftop is reduced to a great extent.
Other few building architectures that might be integrated with this technology are:
As said, it will be awesome to see this technology being implemented. But, what are its advantages that makes it a trend in 2020?
Here are some of those pros:
Solar radiation is available everywhere on this planet. Suppose you get a fabric that you wore having solar filaments attached to it that can create solar power with each fiber.
We know it is totally above our acceptance level. But, you can indeed create solar power with every step taken outside during the day time.
Solar filaments will be embedded in the fabric of T-Shirts, Shirts, Jeans, etc. It will be a more natural way for you to keep you warmer and charge your phone anytime during the day.
The manufacturing companies are now experimenting this in the US by creating army tents with these solar filaments attached to it. If they become successful, it will be a significant step towards bringing a big revolution in solar power creation, and it has all the abilities to become trending in 2020.
Solar power was previously created only by using grounded solar panels. But it is time to grow, and these technologies will revolutionize solar power growth. Be ready to accept something that we have never even thought of!
