Flexible solar cells: Will they someday power your devices?

Flexible solar cells: Will they someday power your devices?

Will you ever be able to charge your mobile device, car and even clothing with flexible solar cells? Researchers are studying whether the now-experimental technology could someday be mass-produced and commercialized, and some of the issues that have to be resolved, including the environmental impact.

Examples of Thermoelectric Progress in 2018

Examples of Thermoelectric Progress in 2018

In thermoelectrics TE, there is currently no huge reinvention at the applicational level as with solar roads and windows reinventing photovoltaics or at the technology level as with airborne wind energy reinventing electrodynamic harvesting of wind.

A rollercoaster which charges your phone

A rollercoaster which charges your phone

Kinetic energy includes everything from the g-force and vibrations of the ride to the screams of the users. The devices fitted on to the train's carriages capture this energy before converting into electrical energy, which is stored in a power management unit throughout the day. This unit is then removed from the carriages by staff and deposited into the on-site mobile charging point, allowing guests to charge their mobile phone.
