Solar panels and solar cells were developed many years ago. Now, they are improved. Kyosemi, a Japanese company developed a new type of solar cells. They are small, and they can capture the sunlight from all directions. This means that the harvesting of solar panels is improved, because they will be able to harvest the sunlight longer. The name of these solar cells is Sphelar. They will be used in a spherical form. This is done in order to maximize the harvesting capability.
Conventional solar cells are easy to produce and they are cheap. But the main problem with them is limited efficiency, because it depends on their position. People who use conventional solar panels, must move them in order to ‘’follow’’ the sun, so they can harvest the sunlight longer. A large solar farms use engines in order to move solar panels.
Sphelar can be placed in one position and there is no need to move them during the day. Also, they eliminate the need for engines that move solar panels. Even better is ability to place more solar cells at the same size as conventional solar cells. According to many experts, this is the future of solar panels.
With solar panels made by these solar cells, the amount of energy they harvest from the sun will be increased. This means that people who use solar panels to power their homes, will be able to use just solar panels. They don’t have to use the power grid or other ways to gain electricity. The price and other information are unknown, but in the near future, this will be available on the market.
