New hybrid device can both capture and store solar energy

TechExplore reports that a new hybrid device can both capture and store solar energy.

  • This new device developed by the University of Houston captures heat from the sun and stores it as thermal energy.
  • This technology offers potential for new developments to make storage for solar energy last longer.

“Unlike solar panels and solar cells, which rely on photovoltaic technology for the direct generation of electricity, the hybrid device captures heat from the sun and stores it as thermal energy. It addresses some of the issues that have stalled wider-scale adoption of solar power, suggesting an avenue for using solar energy around-the-clock, despite limited sunlight hours, cloudy days and other constraints.”
