Increased energy costs and emission of greenhouse gases has created the need for scientists to develop new techniques that will drastically cut the energy costs and help to save our environment. There have been significant developments in research in the last decade, but the most recent developments have taken energy and environmental conservation to another level.
In the most recent development, scientists have devised a way to tweak the glass roof panels in greenhouses to achieve this objective. They have managed to devise a way of growing greenhouse crops and harnessing solar energy at the same time. Scientists have achieved this by using a special pink glass that is set on the roof of the greenhouses.
Several tests have been conducted on the new technology, and it has been proved that the pink glass on the roof of the greenhouse generates enough solar power to regulate greenhouse temperatures. The developers of the new technology note that the pink panels can take greenhouses offline.
The new technology is the work of scientists based at the University of California- Santa Cruz. They published the discovery in the American Geophysical Union Journal. The scientists refer to the pink panels as Wavelength Selective Photovoltaic Systems. The panels are embedded within a magenta luminescent dye.
How the pink panels work
Growing plants have an array of photoreceptors that can detect the quality, quantity, duration, and direction of sunlight. The photoreceptors found on the growing plants can also differentiate different colors in lightwaves.
When the sunlight passes through the magenta luminescent dye, it removes most of the green and blue light wavelengths. The dye enhances the red light wavelengths that are responsible for photosynthesis in plants. Instead of dumping the blue and green light wavelengths, they are channeled to photovoltaic strips that generate solar energy.
