Glass, the Solar Energy Industry and the Latest Trends

Glass already plays a role in solar power, as it is the material most often used to create a protective shell for photovoltaic and solar hot water panels.

However, research from universities in California and Massachusetts, among other locations, may be changing how glass gets used in the solar PV process.
