Abstract:
A new report from Cientifica "Nanotechnologies for Sustainable Energy: Reducing Carbon Emissions Through Clean Technologies and Renewable Energy Sources" examines the impact of nanotechnology on the quest for sustainable energy.

New Research from Cientifica: Quantifying The Impact of Nanotechnologies on Sustainable Energy In Both Dollars and Tons of Carbon

London, UK | Posted on May 2nd, 2007

Both the report and the accompanying free white paper "Nanotech: Cleantech - Quantifying The Effect Of Nanotechnologies on CO2 Emissions" use a new economic model based on primary research that quantifies the impact and diffusion of nanotechnologies over time, allowing more accurate quantification of market impacts than was previously possible.

Cientifica CEO Tim Harper commented, "There has been much speculation over how nanotechnologies can enable a green and sustainable future. This is the first report to quantify that impact in dollars, tons of materials and tons of carbon dioxide."

Through a detailed analysis of technologies both currently available and under development the report concludes that

* The major near-term benefit of nanotechnologies will be in reducing weight in the transportation sector with nanocomposite materials quickly diffusing across the automotive and aerospace industries
* Over the next seven years, highest growth opportunities will come from the application of nanomaterials to making better use of existing resources rather than generating new forms of renewable energy
* Highest growth rates will be in the development of renewable energy sources while the materials sector is already crowded
* Current applications of nanotechnologies will result in a global annual saving of 8 thousand tons of carbon dioxide in 2007, rising to over a million tons by 2014

The report and white paper are available at http://www.cientifica.com . A full breakdown of markets by application, industry sector and country and showing their evolution is supplied to Cientifica corporate clients and updated quarterly.
