Rawlemon’s Spherical Solar Energy-Generating Globes Can Even Harvest Energy from Moonlight

The company claims that its ß.torics system is 35% more efficient than traditional dual-axis photovoltaic designs, and the fully rotational, weatherproof sphere is even capable of harvesting electricity from moonlight. The ß.torics system was invented by Barcelona-based German Architect André Broessel. He sought to create a solar system that could be embedded in the walls of buildings so that they may act as both windows and energy generators.

But the project isn’t only noteworthy for its solar efficiency capabilities - the ß.torics system is designed to generate lunar energy too! The spheres are able to concentrate diffused moonlight into a steady source of energy. . + Rawlemon Via Designboom. Sapient - Global Markets, Government Services, SapientNitro. Science/Math. Adobe.
