AuReus System – Solar panels made of vegetable waste.
Carvey Ehren Maigue, an engineering student at Mapua University in the Philippine capital of Manila, has developed thin rubbers. They generate energy from ultraviolet rays. Traditional photovoltaic panels work only when exposed directly to the sun. On cloudy days, their energy production efficiency drops. The young inventor, on the other hand, created a material that converts UV rays directly into energy. Capable of penetrating clouds. The new material is even able to capture rays that are reflected from other surfaces.
AuReus technology (so named in reference to the Latin term aurora borealis, which means northern lights). It is based on molecules responsible for bioluminescence, which occur, among others, in in chlorophyll. Maigue extracted them from plant waste purchased from farmers. Their crops are being destroyed by weather disturbances caused by climate change.
The ability of these compounds is to convert UV rays into visible light. Such light is captured. But they are also converted into electricity by ordinary photovoltaic cells. They surround the outer part of this cladding.

The future plan of the young inventor is to change the AuReus substrate into threads, but also to form fabrics from them. Which are attached to vehicles and also to airplanes. 25 percent of the people of the Philippines live from agriculture. Between 2006 and 2013, over 6 million hectares of crops were destroyed by extreme weather events in the Philippines. AuReus produces energy about 50 percent of the time. Standard solar panels produce energy only about 15-20 percent of the time.
