Although there are lots of studies and trials ongoing into the different applications of hemp in construction and more, there is no news of hemp solar panels at present. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 562 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-07-17T17:32:35-04:00Added an answer on July 17, 2020 at 5:32 pm The answer is no, not yet. Well, they might be putting a lot of effort into creating ultra-hemp solar panels! The process of making such hemp solar panels seem different from making those regular types since it’s thought to be absorbing more sunlight depending on temperature. Also, there is a whole new era of companies, including Elon musk’s, which are going to cooperate with hemp industries to make solar panels as one of the numerous byproducts of this versatile plant. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 246 Answers 0 Best Answers 521 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-07-14T21:37:18-04:00Added an answer on July 14, 2020 at 9:37 pm Not yet, but some people have built hemp batteries that rival the efficiency of graphene used in supercapacitors. They create these supercapacitors from the waste material from hemp processing: the inner bark. It’s perhaps not a solar panel, but it is nonetheless an energy storage device. Pretty amazing stuff. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 256 Answers 0 Best Answers 533 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-07-13T16:33:22-04:00Added an answer on July 13, 2020 at 4:33 pm Hemp solar panels are not yet available, but it is probably possible, according to researchers in Canada. Aside from being eco-friendly material, hemp has the potential to be an alternative to almost all materials such as fuel, food and beverage, plastics, clothing, medicines, oil, and so much more! Research also shows that hemp conducts electricity. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 313 Answers 0 Best Answers 661 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-07-10T12:53:17-04:00Added an answer on July 10, 2020 at 12:53 pm Currently, there aren’t any panels made FROM hemp, but many users in conjunction with other hemp-composed materials. There’s also a handful of companies projecting to have that technology available within the next five years. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 655 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-07-13T13:42:52-04:00Added an answer on July 13, 2020 at 1:42 pm Not really besides this thick paint-like material. While it is being researched, it may be a few years away until we have actual solar panels comprised of hemp, more accurately, solar cells made of hemp. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Melody 0 Questions 189 Answers 0 Best Answers 391 Points View Profile Melody 2020-07-10T06:05:14-04:00Added an answer on July 10, 2020 at 6:05 am Hemp solar panels are a sort of thick liquid stuff that is kind of like super thick paint, or maybe compare it to liquid roof tar. You paint it on just like paint. Then when the sunlight hits the hemp painted solar panel, electricity is produced. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 500 Points View Profile wavess 2020-07-08T15:22:08-04:00Added an answer on July 8, 2020 at 3:22 pm From what I can find, no, there are no solar panels made out of hemp yet. However, builders who are interested in sourcing eco-friendly building materials are constructing houses made from hemp that also have solar energy panels — which makes the entire home extremely good for the environment and sustainability. Hopefully, soon they will figure out how to create solar cells from hemp. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
