Photovoltaic Solar Panel Integration

New Solar Panel Integration


Researchers have developed solar panels that are "soft as cloth". This new generation of solar panels are soft and flexible, so they can easily integrate into tents, backpacks, and clothing. The solar panels are made out of plastic sheet 0.4 mm thick. Although these solar panels are only 4% efficient, it is a great source of energy while on the road.

The idea: integrate a plastic solar panel into a backpack with adapters for a laptop, cell phone, MP3 player, or any other device using batteries. The solar panel charges the electronic device while the owner walks around. Imagine no longer needing to find a power outlet. Simple pull a charging adapter out of your backpack and hook up the computer.

The advantage of the flexible plastic solar panels: they can be rolled away when not in use or for easy packing, making electricity easily avaible anywhere one can find sunlight.

With this type of development, it is only a matter of time before solar panels are integrated into all of our electronics. Solar panels on the back of cell phones, iPods, laptops, even hybrid cars.
