- Carvey Ehren Maigue, an engineering student from the Philippines, has invented a solar panel that doesn’t require sunlight.
- The Aurora Renewable Energy and UV Sequestration (AuREUS) is capable of absorbing ultraviolet light and then converting it into energy.
- The invention has been awarded by the James Dyson Award as the 2020 Sustainability Winner.
A young man from the Philippines has discovered an interesting way to make solar panels much more efficient. Mapua University electrical engineering student Carvey Ehren Maigue has come up with a new technology that has the capability of harvesting ultraviolet light stored in materials touched by the sun.
Called the AuREUS, or the Aurora Renewable Energy and UV Sequestration, this tech absorbs ultraviolent light in organic luminescent particles which are later converted into light and then energy.
According to Maigue, the AuREUS’ solar film functions similarly “to how we breathe in oxygen and we exhale carbon dioxide.”
“It takes in ultraviolet light, and then after some time it would shed it as visible light,” he also added.
The tech utilizes a type of film that can be installed on building exteriors, walls, and windows. Even more amazing, the said material is made of resin and vegetable crops.
Maigue used solar film coating and then created a 3×2 feet prototype for his apartment window. The unique solar panel was able to produce sufficient energy to charge several mobile devices.
The invention has since earned international recognition as it has been named by The James Dyson Award as the 2020 Sustainability Winner. He took home a $35,000 reward from the James Dyson Foundation.
Founder and chief engineer James Dyson said about Maigue’s invention:
“I’ve always truly believed that young people want to change the world and that’s absolutely right, they should do. It’s their world now, not our world. This gives them the opportunity to solve the problems hat they think are really important to solve and it gives them the confidence that they can literally do that.”
Meanwhile, Maigue shared:
“I would like to help people access clean, renewable energy here in the Philippines.”
