The glass of the future will be made of solar panels

from Motherboard

The humans of the clean and prosperous future will never build windows or walls with plain old glass. Not when they can use solar glass instead. There are already a wide array of projects, most of them still in the testing stages, that aim to transform windows into solar power generators. One researcher wants to fit windows with thin-film "luminescent solar concentrators"; red or gray ones would efficiently convert sunlight into electricity. Oxford Photovoltaics, however, wants to do one better — it wants to build the solar panel directly into the glass. The company, a spinoff from some famous British university or other, just announced a $3 million funding boost, which means we're getting closer to a world with buildings built out of solar glass. more
