Abstract: Energy is essential for the economic development and growth of any society. Depletion of conventional sources and growing demands of rapid urbanization and industrialization are met through effective alternate sources like solar, wind and tidal energy. Solar energy is the most prolific method of energy capture in nature through a photovoltaic (PV) packaged module. In the recent past, for commercial and residential applications, BIPV – Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) are developed. Transparent solar cells are integrated with the existing window panes by absorbing and utilizing unwanted light energy through windows in buildings and automobiles. Such an efficient use of architectural space can prove to be economic for operation and maintenance but calls for installation cost. These cells allow every visible photon to pass through it and absorb all the photons in the infrared and ultraviolet range but are transparent to visible light. Anti-reflective coatings on the outside surface can further increase the efficiency by reducing reflections.
Keywords: Economic Alternative Transparent Maintenance Sources.
Scope of the Article: Economics of Energy Harvesting Communications
