|I&T Wish||Solar Energy Harvesting Window Panes
(REF : W-0014)
|Summary and Challenges||
The objective of the project is to utilise transparent window panes to harvest sunlight for both indoor illumination and power generation.
While visible light would pass through the transparent pane, invisible light such as infrared and ultraviolet light would be absorbed by the pane to generate electricity. Suitable panes should be sought to develop the energy harvesting system.
A trial site would be selected for prototype testing whereby data would be collected and evaluated for small-scale field implementation to determine energy output. Subsequently, the feasibility of a large-scale application in Hong Kong would be studied.
|Expected Outcome||To harvest solar energy from transparent window panels|
|Expected Trial Duration||
Design and completion of prototype testing for solar energy harvesting window panes
|Propose I&T Solution||Closed|
