Recent Breakthroughs in Solar Energy Light the Way,
In our current economic crisis with the BP oil spill disaster still spreading across our oceans, we are forced to look to cleaner cheaper energy sources. This need is facilitated by recent breakthroughs in solar energy.
Photon voltaic is becoming a method of the past, solar panels come in many designs today, but the most recent breakthrough in solar energy is IAUS "Advanced Solar Collector".
This technology attempts to harness the power of the sun through a different design of solar panels. Instead of harnessing the power contained in silicon and phosphorus based panels, this new technology seeks to harness the power of the sun itself. This is by far the most recent breakthrough in solar energy to date.
With the heat generated by the sun, and an automated system controlling these panels to keep them at a 90 degree angle from the sun, this form of solar panel has the capacity to generate a powerful energy source. According to IAUS this technology has the capability to power the whole of the continental US, and do it using just a fraction of the land found in one small state.
How does this solar panel based energy work?
