Support growing for federal push toward nanotech energy solutions
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.
