The discovery could provide an eco-friendly method for supplying residential customers with affordable electricity.

Bioscience engineers from KU Leuven recently came up with a solar panel they placed on a lawn in front of the Center for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis. While the device appeared to be a typical solar panel, it also was attached to a flask of water that indicated when hydrogen bubbles were escaping. It only took a couple of seconds for the first bubbles to show up on the surface.

The panel wound up using moisture in the atmosphere to create hydrogen gas. Following 10 years of development, the panel was capable of making 250 liters every day. 20 such panels could produce enough electricity to provide heat for a whole family for the length of one winter.
