As reported by ExtremeTech.com, Michigan State researchers have invented transparent luminescent solar concentrator (TLSC), which are fully transparent solar cells that can turn every window and screen into a power source.

“The researchers — and Ubiquitous Energy — are confident that the technology can be scaled all the way from large industrial and commercial applications, down to consumer devices, while remaining affordable. So far, one of the larger barriers to large-scale adoption of solar power is the intrusive and ugly nature of solar panels — obviously, if we can produce large amounts of solar power from sheets of glass and plastic that look like normal sheets of glass and plastic, then that would be incredible.”
