As the amount of electricity produced is small, in order to be effective at a practical scale, a whole series of mushrooms would be required. With several mushrooms wired together, enough electricity could be produced to light a small lamp. Researcher Dr. Sudeep Joshi, a postdoc in the Department of Instrumentation and Applied Physics at the Indian Institute of Science, told BBC News: “We are looking to connect all the mushrooms in series, in an array, and we are also looking to pack more bacteria together… These are the next steps, to optimize the bio-currents, to generate more electricity, to power a small LED.”
