Who's working on (or thinking about) the GMO battery tree?

Are there any sci-fi (or scientific) examples of people exploring the idea of "battery trees" - genetically engineered organisms which harness photosynthesis to store electrical energy?

Trees which grow batteries instead of fruit, cacti which store electricity rather than water in their trunks, or mossy solar-energy roofs - that sort of thing.
