    Evolution in Solar Energy Storage

    MIT and Harvard physicists have came up with a new method of storing solar energy. According to them, the world’s energy needs are increasing while the energy sources are depleting with time. It is about time that we make some advancement in the solar storage technology. With the advent of “photoswitching”, storing solar energy on compact devices, with high stability, easier transportation and handling and lower cost will be possible. The photoswitches molecules can take two different shapes. They act as if they have a hinge in the middle and can observe a different shape when their energy is depleted and a very different shape when they are charged with energy. However, their shape also supports better stability when the energy is full. When the energy is to be used, th
