A new dimension for solar energy

Posted by in categories: solar power, sustainability

Circa 2012 Now, a team of MIT researchers has come up with a very different approach: building cubes or towers that extend the solar cells upward in three-dimensional configurations. Amazingly, the results from the structures they’ve tested show power output ranging from double to more than 20 times that of fixed flat panels with the same base area.

Innovative 3D designs from an MIT team can more than double the solar power generated from a given area.
