Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window.

And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
