Researchers build new cheap and sustainable biogenic solar cell

Biogenic Solar Cell - Solar Panels under cloudy skies

A solar cell that uses bacteria can convert light to energy. Researchers from the University of British Columbia (UBC) have discovered a new way to build cheap solar cells that are also sustainable. Called biogenic solar cells, they use bacteria that converts light to energy, even under cloudy skies. The bacteria-powered solar cell works equally efficient in both bright and dim light. This innovative biogenic solar cell generated a current more powerful than any previously recorded from this type of device. Its ability to convert light to energy, even in…
