Solar panels have been hailed as one of the most important energy technologies of our time for their ability to theoretically produce infinite energy. But solar panels only work during the day and even then only if there is enough sun for them to convert into electricity. Well now there is a new kind of panel, and it could well solve that problem. This new tech is called the anti-solar panel, and it doesn’t absorb heat from the sun to turn into electricity. Instead, these panels capture the heat that the earth radiates into the atmosphere at night as it cools off and radiates it out in turn. This radiated heat is then used to produce electricity with a thermoelectric generator. Thermoelectric generators work by converting heat into electricity using a phenomenon called the Seebeck Effect : a difference in temperature in two different conductors or semiconductors results in […]
