Leveraging Transparent Solar Panels

The latest episode of the Green Sense Show, a prominent radio program dedicated to sustainability, delved into the world of innovative agricultural practices with lead scientist Professor Yang Yang from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science. Professor Yang elaborated on his team’s groundbreaking experiment involving the development of transparent solar panels that could dramatically transform the future of indoor farming. By employing organic materials to produce transparent photovoltaics (PVs), the team aims to upscale their experiment for the more sustainable cultivation of vegetables while maintaining the same level of productivity.

This innovative idea is a clear example of the forward-thinking discussions featured on the Green Sense Show. The radio program, which has been on the air since 2010, has made a name for itself as one of the pioneering platforms focusing on sustainability. Each week, the program presents a thought-provoking dialogue with scientists, business leaders, activists, or entrepreneurs working to shape a more sustainable future for all.

The program hosts a broad range of professionals in sustainability, giving the audience a comprehensive understanding of how various fields contribute to a more sustainable future.
