Artificial Leaf Inventor and Patterson Rockwood Professor of Energy Daniel Nocera Daniel G. Nocera is the Patterson Rockwood Professor of Energy at Harvard University. He recently accomplished a solar fuels process that captures the basic elements of photosynthesis and he has translated this science to create the artificial leaf. This discovery sets the stage for a storage mechanism for the large scale, distributed, deployment of solar energy. Time Magazine named his artificial leaf as the Innovation of the Year for 2011. He was named as 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time Magazine and was 11th on the New Statesman's list on the same topic. Nocera is a frequent guest on TV, he is regularly featured in print and he was in the feature length film Cool It, which premiered in the U.S. in November 2010. His 2006 PBS show was nominated for an Emmy Award, and it was used as a pilot to launch the PBS NOVA show, ScienceNow. In 2008, he founded Sun Catalytix to bring personalized energy to the non-legacy world.
