'Sun in a box' would store renewable energy for the grid

Engineers at MIT have developed a grid-scale energy storage concept known as the ‘sun in a box’, which they claim would be half the cost of pumped hydro storage. The system relies on the transfer of molten silicon between two cylindrical graphite tanks, each about 10m wide. Silicon in the ‘cool’ tank would be stored […] The post MIT ‘sun in a box’ uses white hot silicon for energy storage appeared first on The Engineer.
