Researchers find ally in quest to make solar panels work on cloudy days: E. coli

Global reported on UBC researchers who developed a method of building a solar cell using bacteria that can effectively harvest energy on cloudy days.

“On a day like today in Vancouver, where it’s overcast, these things will perform quite well compared to the conventional solar cells,” said lead researcher Vikramaditya Yadav, a professor in UBC’s department of chemical and biological engineering.

Yadav was also interviewed on Breakfast TV and CBC’s On The Coast (at 1:06).
