Cheap beads offer alternative solar-heating storage

Happy to see some research in India mentioned here. Hope to see more and more of it.

Mechan­i­cal engi­neer Meenakshi Reddy of Sri Venkateswara Col­lege of Engi­neer­ing and Tech­nol­o­gy, in Chit­toor, Andra Pradesh, and col­leagues explain how cer­tain mate­ri­als, known as phase change mate­ri­als (PCM) can store a large amount of heat in the form of latent heat in a small vol­ume.
