Bacteria eating and breathing electricity

How do we use bacteria that can eat and breathe electricity using renewable resources to produce something we can use? This could potentially be very powerful here in Australia as we have abundance of land, sun and wind but in areas that aren't populated.

Ashley's research is also looking at ways in which dairy farmers can produce less methane and greenhouse gases from their cattle by feeding cattle the right foods and supplements.
