global energy is in urgent need. Countries have taken measures to save natural energy, and some ideas to deal with the energy crisis have come out, with promising prospects. According to time magazine, the following ideas are cool:

avoid dust falling into the machine. You may never think that ordinary architectural paint can help solve the world energy crisis. But Michael flikinger, 54, founder of the Biotechnology Institute at the University of Minnesota, has found a way to produce hydrogen - and then electricity - from bacteria that grow in most paints. The polymer containing the bacteria is thinly coated on plastic or metal. The thickness of this coating is only about two-thirds of that of a piece of paper. The gas and nutrients are penetrable to it. When exposed to light, it is activated to start producing hydrogen, which can be used by fuel electricity. 1) when the servo motor is overcurrent, overvoltage and overspeed, the pool captures and converts it into electricity. It sounds good, but what's the use of it? "We are still far from practical application, but we are optimistic about the future," flikinger said Now there are photobioreactors in the laboratory, but because they are composed of bacteria and liquid slurry, they need to be constantly stirred, so they are inefficient and expensive. Flikinger's paint only needs waste carbon sources, sunlight and a thin layer of highly concentrated microorganisms based on the study of 46 minerals in the world by the European Commission. At present, more basic science and engineering research in the laboratory is needed to test this idea. But one day, flikinger's polymerization experience helped us give up fossil fuels, just turn on one light at a time
