No magic bullet for energy crisis

Abstract:
At Berkeley Lab, this energy challenge has captured the imagination of some of our very best scientists. We are mounting a major, multidisciplinary initiative to create sustainable, carbon-neutral sources of energy. One of my hopes is that some of the most rapidly advancing areas in science, such as nanotechnology and synthetic biology, will transform industries, enabled by world-class facilities like Berkeley Lab's Molecular Foundry and the West Berkeley Biocenter, in partnership with the University of California at Berkeley. I urge government and industry to more heavily invest in this nationwide quest to secure our energy future.
