Nanotechnology and the Future of the Energy Industry

Abstract:
Yesterday, two separate news items highlighted the growing importance of nanotechnology to the energy industry. The first was a short news item announcing that Nanosys and signed an agreement with Sharp to use its proprietary nanostructure technology in fuel cell technology for portable consumer electronic devices like laptops and cell phones. The second item was an article discussing Nanosolar’s use of nanotechnology to produce light, flexible, durable and highly efficient solar cells.
