Solar Orb are Future for Solar Energy

German architect André Broessel, of Rawlemon, has looked into his crystal ball and seen the future of renewable energy. In this case it’s a spherical sun-tracking solar energy-generating globe — essentially a giant glass marble on a robotic steel frame. But this marble is no toy. It concentrates both sunlight and moonlight up to 10,000 times — making its solar harvesting capabilities 35 percent more efficient than conventional dual-axis photovoltaic designs.

The Concept-

The rotating glass orb, , brings in energy from the sun and concentrates it onto a small surface of tiny solar panels. The ball lens is able to concentrate and diffuse light on one small focal point, making it more sustainable (less material used to create solar cells, most of which are made from crystalline silicon) and more efficient. Additionally, Broessel says poor weather would not impact the device, because of a built-in weather tracking system.

Money -Payback-

The team at Rawlemon are testing windows that are embedded with multiple lenses, designed to be used instead of tradition glazing. In their vision of the future, skyscrapers bubble with ball lenses, powering themselves with super-concentrated rays of light from the outside in.

Let’s say you replaced the south facade of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. Just a quarter of the entire building skin could generate 16.4 Gigawatt-hours per year. If that number means nothing to you, think about it like this: That’s enough to power the tower, and still have 60 percent of the energy left over. If that’s put back into Dubai’s power grid, it would turn more than $1.2 million in profits a year, based on Broessel’s calculations. It could power a city like New York for several hours alone.
