    MIT Research: a thermal battery for storing solar
    MIT engineers have been making inroads in chemically storing the sun’s energy as heat rather than electricity. The idea is to develop a thermal battery that can take in and release solar energy on demand, and over and over again ... "You’ve got a material that both converts and stores energy. It’s robust, it doesn’t degrade, and it’s cheap," said Jeffrey Grossman.
