Wideband optical antennae for use in energy harvesting applications - GreEnergy
Research Project, 2021 – 2024

An innovative solution drastically improves solar energy harvesting
Solar power generation provides a renewable alternative to energy from fossil fuels, with no air or water emissions, no global warming pollution, no risks of electricity price increases, and no threats to public health. However, despite its immense potential, its current utilisation is minimal according to the Centre for Climate and Energy Solutions. Addressing this problem, the EU-funded GreEnergy project will introduce a solar electromagnetic technology solution that would radically improve solar energy harvesting and would have a positive impact on consumers, society, economic growth and the environment. GreEnergy will develop a wideband optical antenna array with very high efficiency.
