Title: Latent heat storage and energy recovery from Stirling engine
Solar energy is plentiful, but currently missing opportunities to save this makes sense. A latent heat storage, including Stirling engine for power generation from heat stored provides relief now. The thermal energy from a solar system is the latent heat storage to heat a salt solution used. The heat can thus be stored without loss over time. If necessary, now, as in a pocket warmer, the dissolved salt will be forced to crystallize. This releases heat, which converts a Stirling engine into electricity.
