Someday you’re flying to New York City, or London, or Tokyo. The jet you’re in is running on solar fuel. As you’re cruising at 35,000 feet, that jet is burning completely carbon neutral fuel.
This is the new energy future.
The liquid fuel derived from the process of artificial photosynthesis could be used in transportation, from race cars to jumbo jets, or to run a generator. Someday, solar fuel could power just about anything that currently runs on conventional oil or gasoline. The possibilities for this carbon neutral energy are limitless. But first, we need to support the research and development necessary to take solar fuels from a scientist’s dream, a laboratory experiment, to a commercial success ready to take over the energy marketplace.
