Researchers from the Solar Energy Institute at the Universidad Polit├ęcnica de Madrid (UPM) are developing a new energy storage system in which the entry energy, either from solar energy or surplus electricity from a renewable power generation, is stored in the form of heat in molten silicon at very high temperature, around 1400┬░ C. The […]

Purdue University researchers with an international team of collaborators have used a ‘thermal metamaterial’ to control the emission of radiation at high temperatures. The advance that could bring about devices able to efficiently harvest waste heat from power plants and factories. Generally, its known that about 50 to 60 percent of the energy generated in […]
