    How about ways to improve the efficiency of solar panels. One way might be to place a larger fresnel lens over the the solar panel, not focused to a point but to the size of the panel. A couple of disadvantages, the panel may have to be submerged in a non-conductive liquid to keep it cool and the whole arrangement would have to track the sun. Can you think of other solutions?

    Building a real microinverter + PV panel is pretty challenging, and a very real-world project.
