Solar Energy from Fruit Waste

post-image

UV rays carry more energy than visible light, however, most solar panels are designed to capture visible light, not UV. In 2020, a Philippine student found a way to capture UV energy, convert it to visible light and thus deliver conventional solar power. Better yet, his flexible resin (solar film), created from fruit & vegetable waste, can be applied just anywhere, including high-rises to create a vertical solar farm. His innovation won the 2020 James Dyson Foundation Sustainability award and is to be trialled soon in a medical clinic in the Philippines - can't wait for the next update.
