Nanotechnologies for Sustainable Energy: Reducing Carbon Emissions Through Clean Technologies and Renewable Energy Sources (Portable Electronics Sector)

  • Published: May 2007
  • Region: Global
  • Cientifica Ltd

'Nanotechnologies for Sustainable Energy: Reducing Carbon Emissions Through Clean Technologies and Renewable Energy Sources' examines the impact of nanotechnology on the quest for sustainable energy.

Through a detailed analysis of technologies both currently available and under development the report concludes that
- The major near-term benefit of nanotechnologies will be in reducing weight in the transportation sector with nanocomposite materials quickly diffusing across the automotive and aerospace industries
- Over the next seven years, highest growth opportunities will come from the application of nanomaterials to making better use of existing resources rather than generating new forms of renewable energy
- Highest growth rates will be in the development of renewable energy sources while the materials sector is already crowded
- Current applications of nanotechnologies will result in a global annual saving of 8 thousand tons of carbon dioxide in 2007, rising to over a million tons by 2014
