Personalized Energy

with 2 comments

What’s an Olympic-sized pool of water, the Sun, and an artificial leaf have in common? The solution to the worlds energy problems! Dr Daniel Nocera (lab, wikipedia) has created an “artificial leaf” that when immersed in water and illuminated by sunlight breaks water into hydrogen and oxygen.

Dr Nocera says that one pool of water contains enough energy (by rearranging its bonds) to more than satisfy our present energy demands. He envisions a energy revolution where we personally create our own energy using the artificial leaf. No more meters… No more centralized electricity production… No more grid…
