What happened to this technology? Announced in 2008 by MIT
Four years later...
Daniel G. Nocera, the Henry Dreyfus Professor of Energy at MIT, has developed a simple method to split water molecules and produce oxygen gas, a discovery that paves the way for widespread use of solar power.
With this technology, each home would be able to produce all the electricity it needs not only to run the household, but also to power a car.
So where is it and why isn't this news?
And what's happened since?
In 2010, he signed with something called the Tata Group of India to commercialize his research. Then in 2012 Harvard hired him away from MIT.
Here he is entertaining undergraduates at Harvard in September 2012. I liked it better when he was talking about the science and how it would be applied.
