A team of researchers in Sweden has developed an energy storage molecule that can store energy for as long a 10 years. The molecule is a combination of carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen. When hit by a ray of light, the molecule holds the sun's light and stores it until a catalyst is used to release it. The team has coated an entire building to demonstrate heating use cases involving coating of EVs and windows with their solution. The catch here is that it is not known whether the same system can be used to produce electricity.
