The idea of an “artificial leaf” sounds simple enough: Take a small, cheap, light-collecting device the size of a typical leaf, dunk it in a quart of water, and use solar energy to generate enough hydrogen gas for powering a small fuel cell. Scaled up, these solar-derived fuel cells would…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/soalr/energy-innovation-artificial-leaf-could-blow-up-fuel-cell-market-energy-storage-solution/ clean energy innovation, Cleantech, Efficiency, Electricity, Hydrogen – Fuel Cells, National Institute of Standards and Technology, News, NIST, photo electro chemical (PEC), photoelectrochemical, photovoltaic cell, Solar Power, Storage, Water
