Buildings have a lot of surface area that’s exposed to sunlight, so why just stop at rooftop solar panels? We’ve already seen solar energy-harvesting windows, and of course Tesla’s solar roof. Thanks to research being carried out at the University of Exeter, we may soon also have the option of replacing opaque exterior walls with solar glass blocks.
