Photosynthetic microorganisms (both prokaryotes, such as cyanobacteria, and eukaryotes) typically show exoelectrogenic activity, that is to say they generate small amounts of extracellular current, which is stimulated by illumination. Bioelectrochemical devices generating power in this way are referred to as ‘biophotovoltaic’ systems.

I shall discuss work on the biological basis of exoelectrogenic activity and the possibility of using biophotovoltaic systems to power small electrical devices.
