Focus on energy: Nanomaterials enable alternative energy

Abstract:
A classic rule of design – be it automotive, industrial or interior – states that the fewer the components in a system, the more elegant it is. The basic sticks and connectors of Tinkertoys? Pretty elegant. But the all-purpose Lego brick…that’s the epitome. Judging by that standard, hybrid gasoline-electric vehicles, the new generation of vehicles with two motors instead of just one, look like a clumsy, clunky compromise.
