Researchers harness solar energy for use at night
Laboratory Equipment
Solar energy has long been used as a clean alternative to fossil fuels such as coal and oil, but it could only be harnessed during the day when the sun’s rays were strongest. Now, researchers led by Tom Meyer at the Energy Frontier Research Center at the Univ. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have built a system that converts the sun’s energy not into electricity but hydrogen fuel and stores it for later use, allowing users to power devices long after the sun goes down.
