Seeing is believing: Energy harvesting windows one step closer to reality

Windows that can collect solar energy, called photovoltaic windows, are the next frontier in renewable energy technologies, as they have the potential to significantly increase the surface area of buildings suitable for energy generation without impacting their aesthetics—an important aspect in metropolitan areas. Now researchers at the University of Minnesota and University of Milano-Bicocca are bringing the dream of windows that can efficiently collect solar energy one step closer to
