Sunflower-influenced solar panels ‘could harvest 400% more energy’

Researchers have developed ‘SUNbots’, which feature innovative ‘stems’ able to point solar panels directly towards light sources

Sunflowers inspire efficient solar systems

A US researcher has created a way to mimic the motion of sunflowers in order to maximise the output of solar power systems. Hongrui Jiang, the electrical and computer engineer Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison uses the form of heliotropism, which is the growth or movement of flowers and plants towards the light of […]
