As we know that a solar panels due to the energy of light, but can we run a solar panel with the same amount of energy provided as heat?
It would certainly require a material that allows electron release from energies lower than those of the visible spectrum. The energy of a wave is given by E=hf where h is the planck constant (6.63 x 10^-34) and f is the frequency. The wavelengths of IR light range from 0.001 m to 750 x 10^-9 m. (Hyperphysics.com, infrared) Using this knowledge you can get the frequency by using the equation c=wf where c is the speed of light and w is the wavelength. Once you habe done these calculations you could go and find a material that is has suitable properties such that the energy you calculated would be sufficient.
