Wow this is great. This might as well be the next Nobel prize wining discovery. The sun is an infinite source of energy, at least for the next couple million years :D. If it is possible to harness the energy of the sun to produce electricity and water, in a TREE that will answer a hundred burning questions right now to humans. Fossil fuel is slowly getting depleted and the world is now tuning towards alternate methods. Now with the development of electric vehicles, use of gasoline has decreased ...

Glad to see electrical engineering advances that focus on going green. We need more of advances such as this to counteract global warming. It is rare to see an advancement that provides sustainable energy yet the end product does not pollute the enivronment. It is even more impressive when that end product is clean water. I remember memorizing chlorophyll and photosynthesis on science subjects during primary education but never did it cross my mind that this could lead to something that could po...

This is really a very interesting close cycle that starts with water and ends at water that produces electricity. Israeli Researchers have utilizes a membrane from spinach leaves that requires light to carry out photosynthesis. They have developed a device that can produce electricity and hydrogen from water using sunlight. This device is called as a bio-photo-electro-chemical cell that produces storable chemical energetic molecules. In this way, solar energy is converted to chemical energy that...
