Storing Energy

Nature's billion-year-old battery key to storing energy
By Itza Montforte Noguez, Web Writer.

Base on the enzimatic action which can store energy from seconds to hours, a new study was published in the Journal of The American Chemical Society which demostrates that it is possible to extend the length of time a battery can store, bringin us one step closer to clean energy.

The research at Concordia University by the Department of physics and associates reaches toward an enzyme found in bacteria that is crucial for capturing solar energy in a similar way to what a battery does.    László Kálamán, an associate professor showed that although energy in nature is used immediately, by adding different molecules the lifespan of its electrical potencial is extended.

This research is also inpired by the billion-year-old natural batery, the photosynthesis plants use. this process, although very difficult to repruduce, is the key to storying and using solar clean energy in a way never seen before.
