This book bridges the knowledge gap between the fundamentals and the technological advances in biological photosynthesis assisted energy generation. Sustainable photosynthesis assisted power generation is an attractive renewable energy generation system, which generally exploits the light-harvesting systems of phototrophic prokaryotes (Oxygenic Phototrophic-Cyanobacteria and Anoxygenic Phototrophic-Purple, Green and Helio Bacteria) and higher Plants of biological systems. This process captures and transforms solar energy, resulting in anabolism and catabolism activity ensuring the growth and development of the biological systems. The concept of converting organic material into electricity via microbial energy generation systems, i.e. microbial fuel cells, evolves renewable energy generation systems. Integration of these effective energy generation systems with the photosynthetic biological systems opens a broad venue in the sustainable renewable energy sectors. This book explores the various diverse light-harvesting biological systems for electricity generation and explains the fundamentals and applications from lab-scale to in-field.
