A special thermal battery will help solar stations generate energy at night. In addition, it will provide an opportunity to store electricity.

It is reported Sotsportal with reference to Hightech.
- The thermal battery was developed by specialists from Curtin University and international companies United Sun Systems and ITP Thermal as part of a project to create a system of concentrated solar energy, which requires a battery. It provides an opportunity to store energy and give it away at any time of the day, seven days a week, writes Phys.org. The ultimate goal of the project is the development of a new technology that integrates the thermochemical energy storage into the parabolic Stirling concentrator. This technology produces up to 46 kW of energy and is ideal for remotely located industrial enterprises, such as mines, because it provides them with the right amount of electricity on demand. Depending on your needs, you can install several parabolic plates.
A thermal battery developed by a team of Australian scientists will become part of this power grid. It accumulates heat in the metal, and gaseous hydrogen or carbon dioxide is used as the coolant. At night, or when it is overcast, hydrogen or carbon dioxide from the tank is absorbed by the warmer metal, forming a metal hydride or carbonate that releases heat. Then heat is converted into electricity using a thermogenerator.
“Energy storage has always been a stumbling block for renewable energy, but our prototype thermal battery can store and, if necessary, give off solar energy regardless of sunlight,” explained Professor Craig Buckley, project manager.
