Costs for maintaining and operating China’s wind turbines are currently running at […] More

  • Solar Harvesting System Works Transparently on Windows

    Finally, there’s a new type of solar concentrator being developed to generate solar energy without blocking the view. When it is placed over a window, it harvests solar energy while still allowing people to see through the window. Researchers from Michigan State University call this new solar harvester a transparent Luminescent Solar Concentrator (LSC). The […] More
