When installing solar panels, orientation and angle are important elements to consider. Engineers will find the best orientation and angel to install the solar panels, in order to get the longest eligible sunlight. It also means sunlight that couldn’t reach the surfaced of the solar panels are being wasted everyday. It would be good if there’s a solar panel that could rotate to chase the sunlight just like a sunflower!
There are many tall buildings in Hong Kong, it is a pity when solar panels could only be installed on the rooftop. It would be good if solar panels could be installed on the outer walls of a building and on its windows without affecting the building structure nor blocking the sunlight!
Wait, these technologies actually exist! Both technologies are being developed. Mr Hon Ming Wong, Technical Manager of CarbonCare InnoLab will share with us the technological development of sun tracker and building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV).
We wish that through imagination and scientific research, we could make greater use of solar energy and build a low carbon future. Speaker’s profile:
