Scientists have made a flexible membrane from a wooden piece. This produces electrical energy same as that runs in a human body. Charged channel walls produce this energy, with specific properties of natural nanostructures of wood. University of Maryland, US conducted the research. Owing to the advancement in technology, scientists succeeded in producing voltage effectively using minute temperature difference. Trees have channels to circulate water to the leaves and the
