Solar power gets a cheap storage process

October 20, 2008 at 9:19 pm Leave a comment

There is a great article in the MIT Technology Review (http://www.technologyreview.com/energy/21536/) about a discovery mentioned some time ago.  These scientists have come up with a process that duplicates the photosynthesis process thus allowing for the potential of a cheap storage medium for the energy generated via solar power.

It is much more in depth than the previous postings.

Excerpt: ““I’m going to show you something I haven’t showed anybody yet,” said Daniel Nocera, a professor of chemistry at MIT, speaking this May to an auditorium filled with scientists and U.S. government energy officials. He asked the house manager to lower the lights. Then he started a video. “Can you see that?” he asked excitedly, pointing to the bubbles rising from a strip of material immersed in water. “Oxygen is pouring off of this electrode.” Then he added, somewhat cryptically, “This is the future. We’ve got the leaf.”

As always I thank you for your time and interest. Please take the time to Digg, Stumble Upon or add to the other social network of your choice to help me spread the word about these issues. Please forward any questions or suggestions to: askthefm@gmail.com
