Energy trapping molecules

Scientists at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg have figured out how to harness the energy and keep it in reserve so it can be released on demand in the form of heat—even decades after it was captured. The innovations include an energy-trapping molecule, a storage system that promises to outperform traditional batteries, at least when it comes to heating,

That might be behind Bloomberg's paywall.

Might not be any use for electricity production, but for heating buildings and electric cars etc.....

Are you sure this wasn't dreamt up by Woodford's Patience Capital? :lol:

Figure 2 (d) seems to show ~10% drop in absorption over 40 cycles. Not terribly practical then?
