Spherical Solar Energy Cells

The biggest hurdle in the use of clean energy is their costing which is far more than traditional sources. We at Projectideasblog.com always try to bring you information about the latest technologies and innovation and this article is one of those posts where we will not discuss about idea but technology which in future has potential to change our lives.Scientist around the world are working day and night to make it cost effective.Batteries and Material cost are two main reasons for its high production cost. We can bring down its cost in two ways; first by reducing the price of storage that we discussed in our last post and second by improving the efficiency which we are discussing today.

Today we will discuss about the new solar cell developed by Barcelona scientist Andre Broessel which can significantly improve the efficiency of existing cells. It is with solar energy is its low efficiency. German Architect Andre experiment seems to be solution of this problem and it would improve its efficiency by 35 percent.It is based on the concept of focusing sunlight to one point. Founder of this technology claims that it will not only improve efficiency of solar power plant but also produce electricity when sunlight is not widely available i.e. night.Moreover with the help of spherical cells we can produce solar power 24x7 which is itself a revolution and launchpad for future ideas to blossom.

How it works?
It catches sun rays from all directions and concentrate this rays(moonlight or sunlight) on one point.Biggest advantage of using this technology is that It concentrates light by 10,000 times.
