Bio-inspired Energy Storage: A New Light for Solar Power

Bio-inspired Energy Storage: A New Light for Solar Power

Inspired by an American fern, a groundbreaking prototype could be the answer to the storage challenge holding solar back as a total energy solution. The new type of electrode created by RMIT University researchers could boost the capacity of existing integrable storage technologies by 3000 percent. But the graphene-based prototype also opens a new path to the development of flexible thin film all-in-one solar capture and storage, bringing us one step closer to self-powering smart phones, laptops, cars and buildings.
