UMass Researchers Make Electricity from Humidity

Creating non-polluting and low-cost renewable energy, right out of thin air.  Sound too good to be true? It’s not, according to two researchers at UMass Amherst. Microbiologist Derek Lovely and Electrical & Computer Engineer Jun Yao have developed a device to make electricity from humidity. The device they’ve developed creates energy using moisture in the air. Lovely and Yao joined Carrie Saldo to share more about this innovative clean energy solution.
