Solar energy technology keeps on getting better and more efficient. Engineers and scientists around the world and in our country are working day and night to find new ways to harvest solar power at the highest efficiency and the most affordable price. If you think about it, solar energy is just starting to rapidly expand. As many environmental advocates push towards using renewable energies in place of harmful materials, scientists are looking to make solar even better.
Solar Energy Improvements Lie in Nature
A Michigan State University professor in the department of chemistry believes that the future of solar energy technology lies within nature. By this, he is referring to the abundant materials in nature that are scalable and designed to improve upon the energy conversion systems found in nature.
There is a new study that shows molecules telling scientists how to modify to better absorb solar energy for power usage. It’s a molecular property known as quantum coherence, which may play a huge role in natural photosynthesis.
Nature can tell us more things than we already know about harvesting solar energy. Sunlight is rather low-density for an energy source even though it’s abundant. You need large amounts of space to collect the right amount of solar energy. This is also why the commercial solar energy is ramping up with industrial and commercial companies. The goal for scientists researching solar energy is to harvest molecules that absorb energy from sunlight to be used for energy production and storage. The more molecules scientists find, the more energy we can harvest for the world.
This can have amazing benefits for the solar energy industry. As the industry grows, so does the technology. The easier and more efficient way to harvest solar energy will only help the world deal with problems.
