water_4a7dx_69MIT professor Dan Nocera have founded a solution to combat the energy crisis. Instead of using wind turbines or expensive solar arrays, Nocera is attempting to power you vehicle and you home with just 5 liters of water. The professor claims that this solution could change our homes into our fuel stations and power plants powered by water and sunlight.

This new technology come with the development of a manufacturable, cheap, efficient electrolyzer made from potassium and cobalt phosphate that works at room temperature and efficiently produces oxygen and hydrogen gases from water using solar energy. This technology powered by a 6 X 5 meter photovoltaic array on the roof could generate enough hydrogen from just 5 liters of water to power an entire house plus a fuel cell good for 500 km of travel.
