A Harvard graduate has begun a pilot project in Namibia. He is trying to use microfibial fuel cells that make use of energy given off by the soil. Microbes are amongst the technologies that hold promise of bringing power to developing states. This has also won $200,000 in grants to help bring inovative lighting to more that 74% of Africans who don't have access to electricity. You have heard of solar and wind power and now you have heard of SOIL POWER!
