Clean Electricity from Bacteria? Researchers Make Breakthrough in Race to Create 'Bio-Batteries' Mar. 25, 2013 — Scientists at the University of East Anglia have made an important breakthrough in the quest to generate clean electricity from bacteria.
Israeli Company Sol Chip Developing World's First Everlasting Solar Battery "Researchers at Sol Chip are working on an ambitious project to create the world’s first everlasting #solar battery. It is hoped that the battery will be able to recharge even in low-light environments to power just about any mobile electronic device. So far the battery has been limited to an output of 8.4 volts of power, which is enough to power a limited array of outdoor devices." Visit www.GreenerDawn.com

8.12.14 - Far Out! Hemp Could Power Better Super-Batteries - "Industrial hemp...can play a role in manufacturing super-powerful supercapacitors for energy storage at a cost that's far cheaper than graphene." A Clarkson University team showcased the process at the American Chemical Society's national meeting in San Francisco. Hemp fibers were heated "to create carbon nanosheets that can be used as electrodes for supercapacitors that is slightly better than graphene but 1000 times cheaper.
