Japan’s new Bio-Energy

By | December 14, 2007

An aquarium in Japan has come up with a novel way of generating free electricity to light up a Christmas tree. An electric eel!

Two aluminum panels inside the eel’s tank work as electrodes to catch its power. Cables attached to the panels supply the lights on the nearby tree with electricity. The eel is able to generate up to 800 watts of energy every time it moves. Way cool!
