MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) -- An innovative energy storage device has been developed at Grand Valley State University's business incubator.

The Muskegon Chronicle reports that Energy Partners founder Jim Wolter and partner Ed Brandel believe that the device developed at the Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center could be a game changer.

Solar 24 combines a solar energy panel with a battery pack and electronic circuits to provide a steady stream of energy even when the sun is not shining. Patents are pending.

Energy Partners is a three-year research and development venture that introduced Solar 24 at the Solar Power International Conference in Chicago at the end of October.
