The team showed that the device could run efficiently for 12 consecutive days and produced hydrogen with 99 percent purity.
Orbital Marine Power O2 tidal turbine will be able to single-handedly generate enough clean-power to supply 2,000 UK homes, offsetting 2,200 tonnes of CO2 a year.
Researchers have developed a generator that uses a field-effect transistor-style structure to instantly produce a surprisingly high voltage from water drops - a single drop can muster 140V, or enough power to briefly light up 100 small LED bulbs.
According to statistics, hydropower accounts for the largest share with an installed capacity of 1,172 GW, wind and solar energy account for most of the remainder with capacities of 564 GW and 480 GW respectively.
