Dan Nocera, the founder of Sun Catalytix, has claimed that his company is developing a process by which a mere bottle of water treated with a photovoltaic array could be used to power an average household for a day.

The announcement came at the inaugural ARPA-E conference, held on March 2. A video below explains more:
