    We’ve been seeing a wave of innovations in solar panel technology, like perovskite solar cells, solar tiles and roofs, and organic panels. But what if we could harvest solar energy from the windows and skylights of our homes and skyscrapers, or even from our car windows and cellphone screens?

    This video explores transparent solar panels and how they stack up against conventional panels. Could transparent solar cells be the future of solar energy? Or does it remain to be unseen?

    Do you think we’ll see transparent solar take its place on more of our buildings, cars, or even laptops and smartphones, in the near future?

    Either way, the future certainly looks to be bright!

    Many more credible (IMHO) futurists are predicting that PV will soon become so cheap and ubiquitous that it will be “over deployed”. If it is just as cheap or nearly so to build PV into a surface as not, then the often disproportionate appeal (read “gimmick”) of generating power with just the sun on your product of choice will lead manufacturers to put it on most everything. Setting aside western capitalist culture’s tendencies to over indulge in everything including this, it is hard to see this trend as a bad thing.

      Any chance you can name some of these futurists or, better yet, links to some of their writings?
