Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten salt power plants and artificial photosynthesis.
It is an important source of renewable energy and its technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on how they capture and distribute solar energy or convert it into solar power.
A single 36” X 60” Improved Efficiency Solar Energy Harvester (IESEH) panel produces up to 450 W/hr for up to 12 hours a day, and can replace an entire array of traditional PV panels for almost the same cost. One IESEH produces more than twice as much power per day than a traditional PV panel that only produces 250 - 300 W/hr for 4 - 6 hours a day.
A recent Patent Cooperation Treaty patent application and international search for prior art revealed no prior art in existence for any of our multiple claims comprising the IESEH technology.
A provisional patent has already been filed in the United States of America.
Apergy’s, 3 dimensional IESEH panels are ultra-efficient solar electricity production system that has the potential to dominate the global electricity generation market.
The IESEH solar panel utilizes multiple different technologies to capture a wider range of the Electro-magnetic (EM) light spectrum and achieves an unparalleled efficiency rating of over 34%. In contrast, Elon Musk’s SolarCity just released its high efficiency PV panel, with an efficiency of just under 22%.
Our IESEH panels employ a unique proprietary glass coating that traps EM light inside the chamber, flooding a series of multiple technologies that convert distinctive ranges of electron volts (eV) to electricity.
REN21 The IESEH three dimensional module exploits a broader spectrum of 200 – 5000 electron volts (eV) whereas today’s standard two dimensional PV panels are limited to a range of 800 – 1100 eV. IESEH is able to capture more EM light because its three dimensional proprietary glass coating traps EM light inside the cell, flooding a series of proprietary films that convert distinctive ranges of eVs to electricity. Each of the differing technologies incorporated are dedicated to capturing a specific range of light ensuring the most comprehensive use of the full range of visible and invisible light. The wider EM range allows IESEH technology to achieve an efficiency rating above 34% and can operate without the need for direct sunlight.
External Design three-dimensional cell and proprietary glass/film results in a longer EM presentation window.
Automation – Temperature Control & Cleaning:
Our system is equipped and adaptable for external cooling and automated system cleaning.
Interior Coating and Exterior Anti Reflective Coating:
Interior surfaces of the capture cell glass are coated to increase radiation absorption and inhibit the exit of EM radiation from the cell.
There is up to a 98.9% transmission of direct light:
Indirect light is usually reflected, but with our formulations we are able to take advantage of up to an estimated 30% of indirect light.
Chemical Composition of Glass:
A proprietary formulation of the external glass of the capture module increases the range of EM radiation that is accessed with minimal, -1.2%, refracted light of any type (tested to the electron microscopic level).
Our proprietary process has solved the challenges that have been associated with this technology. Our cell has been designed to pick up the broad spectrum of available radiation well beyond the standard 1kW/m2.
Our Three-Dimensional Cell:
The composition of the cell surface being three dimensional to the bottom of the IESEH module forces EM radiation back through the cell and back to the capture glass and related surfaces whereby we are able to achieve multiple passes of the eV photons.
IESEH technology generates significant cost savings due to its smaller construction costs and the reduced land requirement and panel count. Current PV plants average $1.63 per watt. The IESEH system is $1.00 per watt. Given the same conditions the daily output of the IESEH array is 260% higher than the industry standard.
