The Energy Frontier Research Center at the University of North Carolina has supposedly developed a system that surpasses the pitfalls of solar energy, making a 24 hour power source. How? Their new system known as dye-sensitized photoelectrosynthesis cell, phew long name, creates chemical fuel by using the solar power to divide water molecules into constituent parts: hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen is isolated and stored as fuel to be used later. Sounds simple, but it’s a very novel process that involves a nanoparticle drawing electrons away from water molecules to make the hydrogen fuel. Fortunately, these scientists know how it works and they say that it has the potential to revolutionize the energy world.
