sorry to crush your dreams, it does need light for the conversion, but it is way better at it than plants

Following your logic we are all living batteries, as every living thing produces ATP, which is the basic organic "battery" . Reading up on this I realised that this bacterium isn't that bad as it sounded in one sentence. It is actually just 10 times as effective in converting sunlight as plants, which means they can do photosynthesis with much less light required. It then proceeds to use the ATP, CO2 and hydrogen to produces alcohol fuels, directly combustible alcohols, which then we can use for energy without damaging the bacterium in any way. I would have said that these bacteria convert CO2 into fuels, not energy, as producing energy is a really wide specter of things.

"Producing" energy is impossible, the first law of thermodynamics is that energy is conserved over time (in a closed system that is). You can't produce energy nor destroy it, you can only convert one form into another.
"Converting CO2 into energy" is formulated rather poorly. What people usually mean when they say they convert something into energy, is that they make a reaction from one molecule to another happen with a netto decrease in chemical energy contained in these molecules which means part of the stored chemical energy can be converted into a form of energy we can use (heat, light, electricity). To 'make' a molecule from scratch always costs energy, every molecule has chemical energy contained in it because otherwise it falls apart. The more 'complex' a molecule, the more energy it takes to make it and the more energy will be released while breaking it down again. Methane for example 'contains' more chemical energy than methanol, meaning a conversion from methane to methanol will release chemical energy that you could use and convert into a different form of energy. Now the thing with CO2 is that it is already a molecule relatively low in chemical energy; you can't really break it down into something even lower to release energy, at some point you just can't get any lower.
As you indicate it's in fact the other way around; energy is consumed (in this case energy from light) to 'invest' into CO2, converting it into a molecule which contains much more energy (carbohydrates for example), which in turn can be used as fuel and burned back into CO2 at a later time.

in terms of traveling without entering buildings and towns, I can travel skyrim without going into a single town or place and no loading, that's what I was trying to say.
