Synthis is an idea that came out of a one month moonshot challenge with TKS. My team and I came up with a solar panel that is 5X more efficient than current solar panels which is made out of purple non sulfur bacteria. Our bacterial solar panels are truly renewable and have the capability to transform the renewable energy field.
