Heating up rust could make large-scale solar power storage possible

By Stephanie Liverani / March 4, 2016

Is the key to large-scale solar power storage rusting before our eyes? Researchers at Stanford University (Stanford, Calif.) found that ordinary metal oxides, such as rust, can be made into solar cells capable of splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen by day for energy use at night.
