American company has invented transparent solar panels that will replace glass in windows

The American company UbiQD has created transparent solar panels designed to be attached to the facade or inserted into windows. The batteries look like ordinary glass with a barely visible tint, Hmarochos reports.

Solar panels combine high light transmission and efficiency. These panels don't just collect sunlight and turn it into electricity - they let in up to 43% of visible light inside buildings, doing the same job as windows.

The efficiency of transparent panels is 3.6%, while in conventional batteries, this figure is more than 15%. The double glazing is based on organic matter; other manufacturers use silicon.

The company assures that you can adjust the glass's transparency by making the panels a dark or light shade. The darker the shade, the more energy is released as more light is absorbed.
