Producing ‘green’ energy — literally — from living plant ‘bio-solar cells’

Though plants can serve as a source of food, oxygen and décor, they’re not often considered to be a good source of electricity. But by collecting electrons naturally transported within plant cells, scientists can generate electricity as part of a ‘green,’ biological solar cell. Now, researchers have used a succulent plant to create a living ‘bio-solar cell’ that runs on photosynthesis.
