How Plants Can Generate Electricity?

Do really living plans can generate electricity? If yes, how?

The answer is yes! Living plants can generate electricity and it is very simple way. Some scientists are working on it to generate electricity from plants in an economic scale. They found and developing the technology to generate electricity living plants without damaging or disturbing their normal life’s. They also identified that wet area like paddy fields or grain growing lands where soil normally wetty is suitable for electricity harvesting.

What is the Principle to Generate Electricity from Living Plants?

The principle of living plants’ electricity generation, just from waste product of bacteria! Yes, electricity generating electron comes as waste product of bacteria living near plants roots. Plants excrete electrons into soil that is broken down by bacteria.

In the organic matter the electrons are released in the break down process. This is the main targeted point to generate electricity from living plants, harvesting these free electrons using sluggish electrodes.

Reciting the principle of generating electricity from vegetation is so easy, in practical usable electricity harvesting from plants is not economical yet. Some scientists are working on it and improving remarkable electricity generation from this Nano source of electron.

Present scale is around one watt of electricity from one square meter of area, a team of scientist from Netherlands trying to scale up it up to four watts from one square meter of area.

Initially it is not rational to add into or alternate the grid power, but possible use for small to medium scale WiFi or mobile charging, lighting color trap to insects’ killer in remote paddy field.

Side effect and Cost Effect to Generate Living Plants Electricity

Electricity from living plants using bacteria produced electron not depends on sunny or cloudy weather, sun-shine or darkness. So, it can generate day or night all the time, it can be the fill up the weakness of solar power at cloudy weather.

Still there is not found any side effect for plants and environment to generate electricity from plants. To harvest electrons from plants root area, no need to go electrode more deep; it’s around five to 30 centimeters only. Experts are hopping to generate up to three watts electricity from one square meter of area. If this dream is become success, it would be one of most clean electricity around the world.

The company was founded in 2009, as a spin-off from Wageningen University, by Marjolein Helder and David Strik. The technology enables the user to produce electricity from living plants at practically every site where plants can grow, the full details on all of the Technology can be found here

Do Plant Can Generate Electrical Signal to Communicate Between Them?

In above discussion we found how plants help to generate electricity from their byproduct electron. Now, question is do plants communicate each other, if yes, do they use electrical or electromagnetic signal like us?

so far, a group of scientist found that plants communicate each other in different way, even they use electrical signal to their communication.

Plants communicate to each other and send some chemical or electrical signal to protect themselves from enemy and survive to nature.

Flowers can send electrical signal to neighbors bees to inform them how beauty, colorful and healthy she is to serve enough honey, bees are attracted and come to.

To communicate through the network, trees send chemical, hormonal and slow-pulsing electrical signals, which scientists are just beginning to decipher. Edward Farmer at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland has been studying the electrical pulses, and he has identified a voltage-based signaling system that appears strikingly similar to animal nervous systems but plants have neurons or brains.
