“A solar thermal fuel is like a rechargeable battery, but instead of electricity, you put sunlight in and get heat out, triggered on demand,” says Jeffrey Grossman, who leads a lab at MIT that works on such materials. (NBC News)
Solar Thermal Energy Storage and Conversion
Liquid as molecule composed of carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen.
Professor (bitr. prof) Kasper Moth-Poulsen (b. 1978-07-07) is a research leader in the field of nano-chemistry, energy storage materials and synthetic chemistry. His research activities focus on the development of methods to address single molecules and innovative technologies for solar thermal energy storage.
The objective is to make materials from nanoparticles, nanorods and tailor made small molecules for a broad range of applications ranging from single molecule electronics to sensors and renewable energy technologies.
