Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    SOLAR BREAKTHROUGH IN THE HOLY LAND

    Converting solar energy into electric power via photobioelectrochemical cells

    19 January 2016 (Hebrew University of Jerusalem via EurekAlert)

    “…The design of photo-bioelectrochemical cells based on native photosynthetic reaction is attracting substantial recent interest as a means for the conversion of solar light energy into electrical power…In the natural photosynthetic apparatus, photosynthetic reaction is coupled to biocatalytic transformations leading to CO2 fixation and O2 evolution…Although significant progress has been achieved in the integration of native photosystems with electrodes for light-to-electrical energy conversion, the conjugation of the photosystems to enzymes to yield photo-bioelectrocatalytic solar cells remains a challenge…Now, researchers [from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in Israel, and the University of Bochum, in Germany] report on the construction of photo-bioelectrochemical cells using the native photosynthetic reaction [with different enzymes and a different infrastructure]…The system provides a model to harness the native photosynthetic apparatus for the conversion of solar light energy into electrical power…” click here for more
