Professor David Wilson has developed a new solar technology that is capable of storing energy from the sun to be used when the sun is not available.
According to Professor Wilson, this idea occurred to him after he visited Nigeria. While in Nigeria, Wilson realized that storing energy presented a big challenge to the country, and women have to travel many kilometers in the bush to gather firewood to cook. Meanwhile, Nigeria has an abundance of sunlight. When Professor Wilson returned from Nigeria, he developed a technology that can use the energy from the sun for cooking, and at the same time, stores the energy for future use. This makes his invention unique, setting it apart from existing solar cooking devices.
“There are a lot of solar cookers out there, but surprisingly not many using latent-heat storage as an attribute to cook the food. There have been solar cookers, grills, and ovens made before, but they all had to be used during the day to function,” Wilson said about what he has created.
