Taking The Nanopulse -- Honk If You Love Nano

Abstract:
Electric cars. You see a few of them on the streets, but you also hear the naysayers grumble about their shortcomings. A lot of those grumblings revolve around the batteries. Short-lived charges. Not enough power. Even safety concerns.

Well, take a look in your rear view mirror, boys. There's someone gaining on you -- electric cars with nanotech-enabled batteries. Right now -- today -- there are cars on the road that have changed the rules on rechargeable batteries thanks to nanotechnology. The best news for industry? There's more than one way to get where we need to go. There are competing technologies proving themselves. And, there are also competing approaches in go-to-market strategies that are showing success. To me, signals we've moved from the dirt path of R&D and are headed for the multi-lane freeway of sustainable, real-world products.
