Solar glass to change the world?

Solar glass to change the world?

An Australian scientist has developed solar glass, a new type of glass, which would be the first clear glass able to harvest energy. Which means by using this glass in a greenhouse, for example, we could produce crops in any climate or season!

The glass is able to harvest energy from nanoparticles from the sun and allows all visible light to pass through into the greenhouse. Those nanoparticles are converted in to energy and heat the greenhouse. This makes it a super-efficient way of producing crops.
And by the way, using greenhouses also means, no need of pesticides, what in the long term is better for all of us.

 

The qualities of glass keep surprising!
