Future iPhone Model May Have Solar Panel Built Right Into The Display | Redmond Pie

Future iPhone Model May Have Solar Panel Built Right Into The Display | Redmond Pie | E-mobility and renewable energy | Scoop.it
Solar power is one of those things that was once supposed to provide a fix for all of our power-based problems. Even though some companies are using solar energy to at least part fuel their datacenters, it has still not quite lived up to its billing. Solar energy has even been talked of as a way of powering our personal gadgets, too, but so far nothing has really come to fruition. Sure, calculators and keyboards exist that run on power generated from the sun, but that's a far cry from keeping a power hungry iPhone juiced all day long.
Sass Peress's insight:

When my team developed the iSun solar charger for phones back in 2001, this is precisely where we hoped things would go. So exciting to see Apple leading in this field...

A long-awaited report on how to curb climate change says the world must rapidly move away from carbon-intensive fuels.
Sass Peress's insight:

Its time to take a hard look at the costs that dirty fuel imposes on us which are not calculated at the pump. When put together with subsidies which are also hidden, the real comparison can be made to renewable, clean energy. Only when these truths are brought out from under the propaganda of the oil industry, can we make thoughtful decisions about energy choices.
