Harnessing the sun’s energy for use here on Earth is a fairly easy thing to do in areas where a lot of sunlight hits the ground (or rooftop, as it were). New developments in solar power technology are working to maximize energy conversion, from capturing as much sunlight as possible to increasing the amount of energy converted . But no solar panel on Earth can do what NextPV is hoping to achieve. The research group is aiming to capture solar energy in the one place where the sun is shining virtually all the time: above the clouds. They say solar balloons floating above the clouds could create high-flying solar farms capable of producing clean energy around the clock.
