Scientists In Abu Dhabi Are Using Sand To Store Solar Energy-4

Scientists in Abu Dhabi are using sand to store solar energy

A team of researchers in Abu Dhabi has developed an innovative new technology that uses sand to store solar energy. Known as Sandstock, the project aims to reduce costs associated with the conversion of solar power into usable electricity. Using locally-sourced sand to store sun's energy, according to the scientists, is not only cheaper, but also…

UCSD’s newly designed composite nanomaterial can capture solar energy with 90 percent efficiency

Previously we had talked about a nanoparticle composite made from gold, that could potentially help in detecting breast cancer. Well, this time around, a group of San Diego-based scientists from University of California (UCSD), have successfully concocted a special composite nanomaterial that has the wondrous ability to convert almost a whopping 90 percent of sunlight…
