• Photovoltaic leaves named as Solar Ivy for harnessing solar energy

    The Solar Ivy is a system of thin, fluttering solar panels that can generate energy by sparkling in the sunlight. These leave can be easily integrated on the side of a building to produce energy. This concept was designed by Brooklyn based SMIT and the leaves consist of thin layer of film material on top of the polyethylene with a piezoelectric generator attached to each leaf. When either the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, energy will be generated. But this technology is still a concept and they are still waiting funding to showcase the ability of their product.
