Scientists Develop Solar Cell With Storage Capabilities

Researchers from Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and the U.S. University of Wisconsin-Madison have created what they call a “solar flow battery” designed to act as both a solar cell and a storage system.

The scientists have harnessed the abilities of both a solar cell and a battery into the “solar flow battery”, a single device that soaks up sunlight and efficiently stores it as chemical energy for later on-demand use.
