Renewable energy and incremental nanotechnology

Abstract:
Over the next fifty years, mankind is going to have to find large-scale primary energy sources that arenít based on fossil fuels. Even if stocks of oil and gas donít start to run out, the effects of man-made global warming are likely to become so pressing that the most die-hard climate-change sceptics will begin to change their tune. Meanwhile, the inhabitants of the rapidly developing countries of Asia will demand western-style standards of living, which in turn will demand western levels of energy use.

Can nanotechnology help deliver the energy needed for all the world to have a decent standard of living on a sustainable basis?
