Powertextiles the Game Changer

Scotland April 2, 2012

Inspired by extending the Scottish soft fruit season by a just a few weeks Robert Mather and his team have developed durable Powertextiles that produce electrical energy through applied photovoltaics to the fabric surface. This ultra low cost application has already delivered test results demonstrating 5% and more efficiency can be readily achieved

Its not just food growers in Scotland that can benefit from such an application imagine what it could do in parts of Africa where such materials can provide shade and energy to pump and irrigate; the growing conditions it could perpetually nurture would be a game changer.
