With the ongoing oil crises, rapid declines in non-renewable sources, emerging greenhouse gases, energy consumption, and increasing in CO2 release are increasing the importance of renewable energy. For these reasons, artificial leaf technology has been developed to both increase alternative energy production and reduce CO2 emissions. With the widespread use of new sources, it is anticipated that greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced. One of the newly discovered sources is artificial leaf technology. Hydrogen is an element found on earth in the form of oxygen compounds (H2O). With this technology, water molecules are H2 produced by hydrolyzing water in a manner similar to photosynthesis in plants. With this technology, the water components, hydrogen and oxygen, are separated from each other by the help of light and converted into energy sources. Photosynthesis reaction of artificial leaf is much more effective than real leaf. The effect of the artificial solar leaf believe they can improve even more in the future. In this study, the importance of artificial leaf technology in terms of renewable energy sources and working principle are examined. In addition, the effects of this technology on energy production were investigated.
