Could this be ‘the one’? Could it be the breakthrough we’ve been waiting for?

I’ve long been interested in solar technology – the one where we are able to obtain cheap energy from the sun. It certainly would help the Earth regarding all this climate change we are/might be/ definitely not ever going through.

A New Zealand company has managed to create a way to make electricity through dyes developed from chlorophyll as well as haemoglobin. Wacko! They think it could be at least two or three years before products become commercially available.

I, for one, hope this technology isn’t buried in the quest for greater profits. The idea that we’ll be able to use the walls of our homes, or the clothes we wear, to make energy tickles me a bit – and one would hope such technology, if it became widespread would help the world as well.

Fingers crossed.
