Book Review: Nanotechnology for the Energy Challenge

Abstract:
Nanomaterials for energy research represents an emerging forefront of materials science and engineering at different length scales, which calls for a book with specific emphasis on the application of nanotechnology in producing energy, the integration of nanomaterials in devices for energy storage and development of innovative and environmentally proactive approaches for energy sustainability. Nanotechnology heralds the technological innovation desired to meet the major challenges of the energy sector namely the improvement of effciency in energy harvesting, storage, sustainability and most importantly significant cost reduction all along the energy value chain. In this context, the research and application of nanomaterials capable of contributing to the energy challenge will be of utmost significance as described in this book.
