A transparent and flexible battery
There are already glazing solar capable of generating electricity from sunlight while being transparent. Now, the windows can even store electricity in the double glazing with the invention of the battery transparent.Scientists from the University of Cordoba (UCO) and the University of AMU have indeed developed a transparent battery to store and regulate the incident solar energy into windows or other translucent surface.
Transparent battery has been integrated photovoltaic system transparent, forming thus a complete photovoltaic generation and energy storage as discreet as possible.
The battery is of the sandwich type thin film, and works with lithium ions and a solid polymer electrolyte. The whole is transparent to the visible spectrum of light is invisible to our eyes. This revolutionary battery is ideal for integration into our windows or glass surface, as well as being transparent battery emits very little heat. A very important point for the flow control frames and thermal comfort of the home or your car
Transparent photovoltaic battery at a reasonable price. Technology enables thin-film photovoltaic mass production at low cost. It is the same for the transparent battery whose production on an industrial scale will not cost very expensive due to the materials used and the manufacturing technique of thin layers.
Integrated photovoltaic system using transparent example of organic photovoltaic cells, it is possible to create windows autonomous solar affordable that will provide direct current to recharge mobile phones or other electronic devices in homes or individual air conditioning supply our cars.
Of autonomous photovoltaic everywhere.
A larger scale office buildings with very large windows could become energy self-sufficient, see photovoltaic become true in the heart of the city by linking the system with other systems of renewable energy.
Thanks to the Transparent photovoltaic battery torque – transparent photovoltaic system, it would even be possible to tint the glass gradually depending on the sunlight or contrary to integrate OLED lights to transform the glass photovoltaic lamp to illuminate indoor or outdoor.
Miniaturization of the system would also be fed directly into electronic devices such as smartphones, tablet PCs or laptops incorporating photovoltaic transparent battery on the back or even on the screen of these devices. This will reduce the weight and increase the autonomy of electronic devices will not need batteries as heavy today.
