The researchers, from The University of Nottingham Ningbo China, say that the material could create a savings of up to 35% on the cost to hear and cool buildings, and may also make solar panels more effective.

UPI.com explains that the material "possesses a larger energy storage capacity with faster thermal response than existing materials."
