2019: Biosol – Biogenic solar cell (completed)
We think energy produced by microorganisms is a potential source of clean and affordable energy that can complement existing technologies. Therefore, our short term goal for the project is to produce a biogenic solar cell based on living bacteria as the photovoltaic component. Developing a viable biogenic solar cell should ultimately lead to a reduction in manufacturing costs, increased recycling and reduced dependence on fossil fuel use.
