|As Robert Heinlein reminded us in his novel Friday, it's raining soup. In this case, it's raining energy from the sun. All we really need to have cheap energy is to have a proper pot to catch that soup.
Scientists at the University of North Carolina think they've found a proper pot. According to UNC researchers harness sun’s energy during day for use at night:
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 University 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 us to power our devices long after the sun goes down.
