Default A breakthrough in solar technology?

I thought this was very interesting and if it can be developed for general use, wouldn't it be fantastic? Not being a science type I don't know how viable it is, but surely this must be something worth exploring?

Interesting certainly, but the thing which really holds back solar, and indeed all renewable energy sources, is the inefficiencies in being able to store the power between when it's generated and when it's needed.
