    New System Keeps Rooms Bright, Lowers AC Bill

    Sun-drenched rooms make for happy residents, but large glass windows also bring higher air-conditioning bills. Now a bioinspired microfluidic circulatory system for windows developed by researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard Univ. could save energy and cut cooling costs dramatically – while letting in just as much sunlight.

    The same circulatory system could also cool rooftop solar panels, allowing them to generate electricity more efficiently, the researchers report in the online edition of Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells.
