Batteries of a new type, storing the solar energy in salt crystals, allowed a 90% reduction in energy consumption for heating and air conditioning of the coffee shop. These results happened in the course of the experiment the SunCool project created with the support of the European program LIFE, writes euro-pulse.ru.
To store solar energy in salt crystals invented by a Swedish company SaltX. According to the developers, the ordinary lithium batteries are inefficient at storing energy from renewable sources, if we are talking about large volumes – those that are needed for heating and cooling.
SaltX has developed a technology of storing energy in crystals of salt using chemical reactions, which the company keeps secret. SaltX has already received the first large order for batteries from Ghana, where they will be used in homes not connected to mains power .
