PanePowerSW Solar Glass
Highly transparent (80%) solar glass panel that generates electricity from solar radiation optimized for use in greenhouses.
The world population is estimated to reach 9.7 billion by 2050 according to forecasts from the United Nations. This will make the sustainable management of food, energy and water more critical than ever. Greenhouse farming can be a solution for the increasing food demands. However, greenhouse operation requires energy for heating, cooling, ventilation and pumping, which represent 25% to 28% of the total operating costs and has an adverse environmental impact.
PanePoweSW is an innovative solar glass technology, developed by Brite, that utilizes a combination of spectrum shifting nanomaterials with mono-crystalline silicon solar cells. Contrary to other PV solutions, PanePowerSW is an 80% transparent solar glass panel that generates clean energy, reduces energy costs, and, more importantly allows the light to pass through it without affecting photosynthesis, making it ideal for greenhouse applications.
