Artificial Forest Converts Solar Energy Into Chemical Fuels One hour of global sunlight contains enough energy to meet the demands of every human on the planet for an entire year. And a recent breakthrough by scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory could make harnessing this energy for human consumption a reality. Researchers have developed an "artificial forest" that can convert solar energy into chemical fuels. In a process that mimics photosynthesis, this artificial...
The strategic objective of the Land Art Generator Initiative is to advance the successful implementation of sustainable design solutions by integrating art and interdisciplinary creative processes into the conception of renewable energy infrastructure. The project can be subdivided into four main areas of focus: events & design competition education outreach the eventual construction of aesthetic renewable energy infrastructure
