The development and utilization of solar energy has become a direction to replace fossil fuels and has become an important means to solve the current environmental pollution. However, it cannot be denied that people are still at a very low level in the use of solar energy. One of the more critical points is about the storage of solar energy.
Although we can turn solar energy directly into heat, computers, and even chemical energy, how to store these energy more efficiently is the key. Now, researchers have found a new way: a new direction to save the sun!
Just recently, a Swedish research team developed a special liquid that can be like a rechargeable battery. When the sun shines on the surface of the liquid, it can capture the sunlight. This process is like a liquid fuel, and then the sun can be released as heat through a special catalyst.
It is reported that the liquid is composed of molecules of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen. The reason why the liquid can capture sunlight is because the molecules of the material can be “variant” by special arrangement to “capture” the energy of the sunlight, and when the fluid When the cobalt-based catalyst is used, the molecular arrangement of the material will return to its original state, and the energy of the sunlight will flow out of the cage as heat.
Does it feel very strange? Is it amazing? Is it really incredible? Indeed, in general, we all think that the preservation of solar energy is basically the conversion of light to other energy, and now the new solution of researchers is not the way, but the light is stored directly, this storage sun The way of light is also a great direct storage and utilization of human sunlight!
Looking at people’s use of solar energy from the current point of view is definitely an effective solution. After all, solar energy is inexhaustible in terms of the length of human existence, so how to use it better. Good solar energy is the key to the sustainable development of energy now, and the new discovery of this researcher is also a good idea for the future development of solar energy!
