Cooling and heating window film using solar energy

Solar window film on a buildning

Researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology have developed a window film that captures the energy from sunrays, utilizes the heat and distributes it evenly throughout a longer period of time. During hot summer days, the energy is saved only to be gradually released at sunset, creating a pleasant indoor climate even when the sun is at its hottest. "Why not make the most of the energy that we get free of charge instead of trying to fight it,” says chemist Kasper Moth-Poulsen, who is leading the research.

Dutch firm to invest $70m in solar factory in Rwanda

At least 900,000 households, or 4.2 million people, will be connected to electricity in the next five years if the proposed solar factory begins operations.

Dutch solar firm, NOTS, has announced it will invest $70 million (about Rwf61 billion) in the production of solar lighting products in Rwanda, raising the country’s prospects of achieving universal coverage by 2024.

The development comes after the Government, early this month, said it had signed an agreement with the firm to manufacture and distribute solar home systems.
