Bionics means learning from the nature for the development of technology. The science of "bionics" itself is classified into several sections, from materials and structures BIONICS means learning from nature to inspire technology development. Biomimetics or biomimicry is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems. Access to sustainable energy is one of the greatest challenges facing the world. Nature can inspire innovative solutions for future energy systems and technology design. Some renewable energy technologies already imitate processes found in nature; however, more can be learned to help us successfully address our future energy needs.
