Cover Story (view full-size image): “Solar Energy Conversion and Storage Using a Photocatalytic Fuel Cell Combined with a Supercapacitor” is a contribution to the international effort being made for the construction of simple and inexpensive devices which simultaneously convert and store solar energy. In the present case, solar energy is converted to electricity using a photoelectrochemical cell, and the electricity is stored in a supercapacitor. The latter is formed by the deposition of charcoal powder on a carbon electrode combined with the electrolyte of the cell. The charcoal was made from wood, but other natural wastes could also be used. The photoelectrochemical cell is operated by consuming an organic fuel, which can also be a natural waste. Therefore, the present technology assures energy conversion and storage while also providing several environmental benefits. View this paper
