The solar revolution is in deep need of ways to help further harness the power of the sun, so this Isolight solar panel cover is engineered to do just that. Capable of increasing efficiencies of solar cells to almost 100%, the Isolight panel works by channeling solar rays into the cells thanks to the reflective design.

The design of the Isolight panel is likened to a shower drain that captures every drop of water rather than being spread around the surrounding area and then captured. This could help to make solar energy capturing more efficient and capable of handling changing sun positions and weather patterns.

The Isolight solar panel cover concept was created in part from a grant from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne.
