MIT: “Sun in a box” would store renewable energy for the grid

2018-12-10T10:27:43+00:0010 Dezember 2018|Allgemein, Silicon Valley|

MIT engineers have come up with a conceptual design for a system to store renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, and deliver that energy back into an electric grid on demand. The system [...]

Disordered materials could be hardest, most heat-tolerant carbides…and cheaper
