MIT researchers claim to have created a 24/7 solar power system.

Researchers at MIT claim to have developed a liquid catalyst system combined with solar (photovoltaic) cells that will generate renewable energy 24/7. “A liquid catalyst was added to water before electrolysis to achieve what the researchers claim is almost 100-percent efficiency. When combined with photovoltaic cells to store energy chemically, the resulting solar energy systems could generate electricity around the clock, the MIT team said.” (R. Colin Johnson via www.eetimes.com)

What this means for the renewable energy industry is that a solar array system can be designed where it generates electricity during the day (weather permitting) that can carry on through the evening hours. This process coupled with energy storage via rechargeable battery storage units, could revolutionize the way we design our future communities and industry. Micro-grids are thus a very probable solution to weaning the world off of non-renewable energy sources that are environmentally damaging and costly.

The future is looking very bright for our ever-expanding energy usage. Renewable energy is not just around the corner, it is here today. And with proper designs of cities and communities, autonomy is a very real option that will become the norm, rather than the exception.
