Bionic leaf a ‘game-changer’ in renewable tech

Harvard University scientist Daniel Nocera has developed a bionic leaf, which uses solar energy to split water intro hydrogen and oxygen and store them in a fuel cell where they can generate electricity at night or on a cloudy day. His inspiration comes from nature, and mimicking the process of photosynthesis. But he’s gone one step better, and is now producing solar biofuels even more efficiently than plants.
