We have developed a thin and flexible solar textile by weaving solar power generation yarns that connect spherical solar cells to conductive yarns.
The development of solar power generation textiles was conducted by industry-academia-government joint research (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, “Strategic Basic Technology Advancement” by Sphelar Power Co., Ltd., Fukui Prefectural Industrial Technology Center, Matsubun Sangyo Co., Ltd., Urase Co., Ltd. and Fukui University.
Solar Power Generation Yarns
The following is a practical example.
First, a solar power tent is used as a power source in the event of a disaster.
Next is shoes that use solar power textiles, with their toes illuminated by LEDs. You can run safely at night.
