How Solar Energy Helps to Create Self-sustaining Cities

Solar Energy. The study marks the first-ever modeling of the feasibility and effect of window-integrated photovoltaics in addition to other solar technologies on a citywide scale.

The study reveals that citywide adoption of existing solar rooftop technology could dramatically reduce Melbourne’s emissions. Therefore, it would lessen dependence on electricity produced by fossil fuels.

ADVERTISEMENT Study authors added that comprehensive installments of energy-efficient solar windows would amplify the effect. Photovoltaic technology deployed in building facades could also lower the city’s carbon footprint.Researchers hope that their models will encourage policymakers, energy providers, construction companies, and building owners to create more
