The ability to produce energy at night makes anti-solar panel especially attractive to the energy providers.
FREMONT, CA: Exploring various opportunities to develop and offer futuristic solutions, the energy industry has witnessed significant transformation with the emergence of solar panels. Today, solar panels are available for both commercial and domestic users in the global market. One of the most cost-effective, reliable, and efficient energy solutions for a number of applications, solar-panel technology also has limitations- generating energy at night. As per an article published in Inverse, researchers are developing anti-solar panels, which can produce electricity during the night.
The idea to build anti-solar panels includes a modern infrastructure that works the opposite way as regular solar panels do in the presence of sunlight. Such a solution can be developed by using a thermoradiative cell, as against the traditional photovoltaic cell used in most solar panels. Anti-solar panel designs are intended to capture extremely long-wavelength light, which enables it to radiate heat as invisible infrared light and generate electricity by capturing the power. Researchers say that such a solution holds the potential to produce almost a quarter of electricity at night that the typical solar power produces during the day.
Such innovations will increase clean energy efficiency in the next few years, encouraging energy providers to aid and invest in anti-solar panel projects. Although traditional solar panels produce massive electricity, from which professionals often save the extra energy with the help of battery technology for future usage, electricity generation through anti-solar panels can promise uninterrupted energy distribution. The technology can eliminate the issue of clean energy shortage while enabling the energy providers to provide for any electricity emergency at any time.
Today, the increasing demand for clean energy determines the future picture of the energy sector, which makes the energy providers understand the need for a continuous and alternative source of electricity. Anti-solar panels certainly promise to be the futuristic solution, as the energy professionals seem especially interested in adopting and welcoming such projects.
