Solar towers- a more effective system for lower light conditions

text-relevantFlag-USANew solar towers, cubes offer 20X more power, researchers say Solar towers are ideal for lower light conditions, Computerworld, By   Mar 23, 2016 5 Researchers at MIT have discovered a method of optimizing solar energy collection by arranging photovoltaic (PV) panels on a tower or in a cube shape.

The new forms of solar energy collection offer anywhere from double to 20 times as much output compared with today’s common flat-panels using the same area.

The technology would be most advantageous in northern climates — further away from the equator — where the less intensive solar exposure can be optimized.

MIT’s research, the findings for which are based on both computer modeling and outdoor testing of real modules, were published in the journal Energy and Environmental Science…….http://www.computerworld.com/article/3047660/sustainable-it/new-solar-towers-cubes-offer-20x-more-power-researchers-say.html
