Well, they need to be transported there as well and a lunar night lasts fourteen days! How about….. A thermo-chemical storage solution? The moons surface has plenty of calcium oxide. This could be combined with water to make calcium hydroxide. CaO + H2O ⇆ Ca (OH)2 The standard enthalpy change for this reaction ...
