Power generated by passive solar energy can be used for home batteries
Solar power is the fastest growing energy source for many in the United States.
But batteries aren’t enough to meet all of the country’s energy needs.
A new battery can be built from passive solar power.
A team of researchers has been working on a solar-powered home battery for about 10 years.
The new battery, called Solar Energy Battery (SEB), has been built with flexible electrodes that can be made of various materials.
The battery can store energy as much as 10 times the energy produced by an electric car battery, according to the team.
The batteries can also be made with flexible materials and can be stacked in a home to store solar power or energy from the sun.
The SEB uses flexible electrodes made of graphene to make a flexible material that can hold energy in place, the team said in a news release.
The team of scientists said the battery is made from a new material called pyrite that can store up to 10 times as much energy as a battery.
The materials can be applied to any number of types of materials, including polymers, polyethylene, ceramics, and ceramides.
They could be used to make solar panels and other solar-generated devices, and they could be incorporated into future battery technology.
SEB was developed by a group of researchers at the University of Washington, the University at Albany, and the University College London.
It was presented Wednesday at the IEEE International Symposium on Applied Solar Energy.
This work was supported by the National Science Foundation, the European Union, and an Australian research foundation.
