Storing solar energy at home

March 7, 2017 - Technology

While engineers build cheaper and more efficient solar panels to soak up more of the sun’s rays, it’s storage that needs a breakthrough so that solar energy can be used when the sun’s not shining. Batteries, at least those we have today, just aren’t cutting it. “We need to find a way to store massive amounts of electrical energy,” says Michael Aziz, a professor of energy technologies at Harvard University. “That’s the single biggest obstacle to getting a large fraction of our electricity from solar power.”
