Support growing for federal push toward nanotech energy solutions

Abstract:
In Washington, they liken it to the Manhattan Project. In Houston, they prefer an Apollo Program metaphor. But the strategists behind two movements to make energy a priority agree on the need for an all-out commitment akin to efforts to build an atomic bomb during World War II and the space race that followed. Both the research branch of the Department of Energy and a consortium of scientists, industry leaders and policy-makers attending a summit at Rice University identified nanotechnology as a keystone to clean, efficient and affordable energy.
