Fully transparent solar cell could make every window in your house a power source

A Michigan State University research team has finally created a truly transparent solar panel. A breakthrough that could soon usher in a world where windows, panes of glass, and even entire buildings could be used to generate solar energy. Until now, solar cells of this kind have been only partially transparent and usually a bit tinted, but these new ones are so clear that they’re practically indistinguishable from a normal pane of glass. This cell is transparent like glass and uses a much broader spectrum of light than common solar cells. With this technology in the near future it will be possible to charge mobile devices or vehicles. More over with transparent solar cells we could use buildings like skyscrapers to harvest energy. Here is a talk from Michigan State University Prof. Richard Lunt.

WOW! what an exciting accomplishment cant wait till its available for consumers.
