Major solar development unleashed by MIT

MIT researchers have designed a new solar power technology aimed at storing energy harnessed from solar panels. Their designs will allow solar energy to be collected during daylight hours and stored effectively and cheaply for use at night. Solar power has always had issues overcoming low efficiency and a high cost basis. The latest research […]
