Problem Addressed

Currently, the most widely used form of solar cells are made using silicon — where silicon is essential to the photovoltaic process that converts light into electricity. However, the production cost of silicon solar cells is high, both in terms of monetary and energy costs.  The current technology introduces a solar cell that does not depend on silicon for the photovoltaic effect; instead, biological systems are used to convert energy by leveraging photosynthesis, thereby significantly lowering the cost of production.
