What sets Hybrid Solar Lighting apart from traditional solar power is that it “captures sunlight and channels it directly into a room, using optical fibers” instead of converting the light into electricity. Video after the jump.

If used in a top-floor of a building, HSL can deliver 50 percent of collected sunlight as indoor lighting…far more efficient than photovoltaic cells, which convert about 15 percent of sunlight into electricity and then have to change this electricity back into light
