To Solve The World's Energy Crisis, One Harvard Professor Turns To Artificial Photosynthesis


Could an artificial leaf solve the world’s energy problems?

Daniel Nocera, Patterson Rockwood Professor of Energy at Harvard University, will give a public talk Thursday 4 p.m. at UC Davis about a future where billions of people get their energy needs from artificial photosynthesis.

The event is titled "The Sustainocene: A New Epoch." Nocera's presentation will talk about his artificial photosynthesis research and what is needed to move forward with it globally. 

We’ll learn more about professor Nocera’s invention and how he thinks it can lead to a more sustainable planet.
