Getting electricity from a plant

Plant energy 植物能量


Could your garden power your mobile phone?

Scientists at Cambridge University are investigating how plants can give us sustainable energy.

They do this by collecting electrons released naturally by plants and turning them into electricity. You can even create your own algae solar panel.

But a lot of work needs to be done to make the process more efficient.
