It looks like we have come one step closer to harnessing solar energy more efficiently. The article :
caught my attention today. It concerns a new catalytic material making the electrolysis of water into hydrogen and oxygen in a very efficient way, storing the solar energy collected during the day, for use at night.
The process mimics photosynthesis, the way plants store energy from the sunlight.
According to the article the technology is so simple that it could be implemented within 10 years, imagine every house generating solar electric power during the day and using the stored surplus energy duing the night.
