New solar fuel machine mimics plant life

A prototype solar device has been unveiled which mimics plant life, turning the Sun’s energy into fuel.

The machine uses the Sun’s rays and a metal oxide called ceria to break down carbon dioxide or water into fuels which can be stored and transported.

The big problem with Solar and Wind have always been energy storage. This is an interesting breakthrough.
