Ceramatec have created the disk, which can hold up to 20-kilowatt hours

A small disc could be the solution for the efficient and cheap storage of the sun’s energy.  A Utah-based company has found a new way to store solar energy – in a small ceramic disk which can store more power for less. Researchers at Ceramatec have created the disk, which can hold up to 20-kilowatt hours, enough to power an entire house for a large portion of the day.
