I have an Idea to propose for energy conversion in everyday buildings.
Ok here's my challenge. I would like to see a material designed that is completely transparent, strong, insulating, and can absorb light from the sun and discharge the energy back into the building as electricity.
I think that such a technology would alone be able to keep the lights on in a house.
Maybe instead of taking heat or light for that matter lets try converting ultraviolet radiation into electricity. This would play two roles.
1 absorb the radiation before it enters the house through a window.
2 Creating more power for the building.
Lets take sky scrapers for instance. there are thousands of windows on all sides of a sky scraper. In fact the windows take up roughly 90% of the surface area. This is a lot of potential energy.
