Strange Science: Solar Power in the Form of a Liquid

MoleculesLong-term storage for solar energy may be a thing of the past, based on new developments coming out of Sweden.

Swedish scientists have improved a molecule consisting of carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen, which rearranges its atomic bonds and becomes an isomer when it absorbs sunlight. Unlike conventional solar panels, which aren’t capable of storing the sun’s energy for prolonged periods of time, this isomer can store the sun’s energy for as long as eighteen years.
