Thermophotovoltaic cells,
. . . a fairly new technology,
. . . that sees solar panels generating electricity,
. . . from heat as well as light.

it uses abundant, inexpensive materials,
. . . is able to store up to 10 times more energy than existing solutions,
. . . is extremely compact and quiet,
. . . with no moving parts,
. . . conversion efficiencies of over
. . . 50% and can produce,
. . . 100 times more electrical power per unit area,
. . . than conventional solar cells.

Called SILSTORE,
. . . it could be used for heating,
. . . as well as electricity.
