Wilson Solar Grill Stores the Sun's Energy for Nighttime Fuel-Free Grilling

A #solar_grill developed by Professor David Wilson at MIT allows users to cook emissions-free day or night. The grill uses a Fresnel lens and solar energy to melt down a container of Lithium Nitrate, which acts as a battery storing thermal energy for up to 25 hours. The stored heat can be used to cook at temperatures above 450ºF.

This new invention is capable of cooking the food you eat during the day, but it will also be able to harvest and store solar energy! This will enable users to cook food at night using the stored power. How is this possible? The solar grill uses a fresnel lens to heat lithium nitrate. Lithium nitrate …

This solar powered grill will even let you cook at night

Lithium nitrate Solar BBQ prototype from MIT. Stays hot for 25 hours. I need this. First I need someone to build and sell them cheap. Then, I need this.

A solar grill that generates cooking temperatures of 450 F, and up to 25 hours of straight cooking time without any energy but the sun. It stores latent heat using a Fresnel lens to harness the sun’s energy to melt a container of Lithium Nitrate, which acts as a battery, storing thermal energy for 25 hours at a time. The heat is then released as convection for outdoor cooking. The lens allows light to enter, but once the light has turned into heat, the barrier traps the heat inside the…

Next month, Friedman Benda will present a new body of work by artist Faye Toogood entitled "Assemblage 5' for her first solo gallery exhibition in the United States. The series plays with three elements - water, earth, & moon - through the use of lithium-barium crystal, cob composite, silver nitrate, & sand-cast bronze. The exhibition will be on view from February 23rd through April 15th. 'Spoon Chair / Moon', 2016 🌑🌘🌗🌖🌕 Photograph by Angus Mill @t_o_o_g_o_o_d #FayeToogood #Moon…
