The energy system MOST works in a circular manner. First, the liquid captures energy from sunlight, in a solar thermal collector on the roof of a building. Then it is stored at room temperature, leading to minimal energy losses. When the energy is needed, it can be drawn through the catalyst so that the liquid heats up. It is envisioned that this warmth can then be utilised in, for example, domestic heating systems, after which the liquid can be sent back up to the roof to collect more energy -- all completely free of emissions, and without damaging the molecules.

Emissions-free energy system saves heat from the summer sun for winter

Scientists at the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden have designed molecule which can store solar energy for later use. Scientists have built up a catalyst for...
