‘Solar thermal fuel’ polymer film can harvest sunlight by day, release heat on-demand | KurzweilAI

MIT researchers have developed a new transparent polymer film that can store solar energy during the day and release it later as heat, whenever needed. The material could be applied to many different surfaces, such as window glass or clothing.

The new material solves a problem with renewable solar energy: the Sun is not available at night…
