A new solar technology startup out of Tel Aviv named GreenSun Energy has developed a panel which can create energy from indirect sunlight. The panels require 80% less silicon, making them much more cost effective, although less energy efficient (for now) than normal solar panels.
The GreenSun creation not only allows for a variety of placement areas for the panels, but the colors make the semi-solar strips more aesthetically pleasing.
Implications - The development of alternative forms of energy has been one of the central issues at the core of the environmental movement. This stems from the over-dependence on oil and the associated carbon emissions. Companies that can find ways to create products that use alternative energy will be poised to attract a growing group of eco-minded individuals.
