USF Professor perfects solar heat storage
Our very special guest on todays Sustainable Living program was a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University Of South Florida Clean Energy Research Center. Yogi Goswami spent most of his life exploring and inventing ways to harness the suns sustainable clean energy. Hes been in the news recently with his latest way to store solar heat energy for use when the sun isnt shining. Yogi talked about all the different applications of his smaller salt balls that can store the suns heat energy more efficiently than any other material.

Floridas investor owned utility companies are skeptical, but he feels that when they see it works it will change their thinking to a greener way to generate power for a better world.
