Imitating Flowers Could Lead to Unlimited Solar Power

Using a natural process that is simple to set up, and inexpensive as well, researchers at MIT are taking nature's lead in developing potentially unlimited solar power.

"The process, which is loosely based on plant photosynthesis, uses solar energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gases. When needed, the gases can then be re-combined in a fuel cell, creating carbon-free electricity whether the sun is shining or not."
