Nanotechnology promises energy security, supply
Breakthroughs in nanotechnology could provide technologies that would contribute to worldwide energy security and supply, said a science policy study from Rice University.
The Mar. 8 report outlines the findings of a group of 50 US scientists and others who gathered for a meeting at Rice in May 2003. The study's findings were announced as the US Congress began another round of efforts to pass national energy legislation.
The scientists advocated a nanoscience and energy research program, saying that it could provide more efficient, inexpensive, and environmentally sound technologies than are readily available.
