Balancing crop production and energy when harvesting in organic solar-powered greenhouses

From an article by Eshwar Ravishankar & others.

This Article suggests that is possible to balance crop production and energy harvesting in organic solar-powered greenhouses

Adding semitransparent organic solar cells (ST-OSCs) to greenhouses can reduce their energy footprint but may also affect plant growth. Ravishankar et al. demonstrate the negligible impact on lettuce grown under ST-OSCs. Furthermore, the trade-offs between solar power, plant growth, and climate control are considered. They show that active layer and electrode selection, along with the use of dielectric Bragg reflectors, provide broad spectral management to fully use the solar spectrum to optimize OSC-integrated greenhouses.
