University of British Columbia Files Patent on Unique Battery Type Solar/Light Conversion Cell

University of British Columbia Files Patent on Unique Battery Type Solar/Light Conversion Cell

The invention is the result of interdisciplinary research led by Professor J. Thomas Beatty, who studies photosynthesis in microorganisms, and Professor John D. Madden in Electrical & Computer Engineering. "We began by asking whether we can learn from nature and make use of natural materials to create useful solar energy harvesting approaches. What we found is an approach that integrates two key components of energy supply: generation and storage".  For more information see: http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/university-british-columbia-files-patent-on-unique-battery-type-solar-light-conversion-1721061.htm  and http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/daystar-technologies-inc-dsti-enters-into-loi-purchase-solar-power-generation-storage-nasdaq-dsti-1722923.htm
