New Report on Role of Nanotechnology in the Energy Industry

Published on May 18, 2013 at 3:56 AM

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Role of Nanotechnology in the Energy Industry" report to their offering.

Nanotechnology is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale.

Nanotechnology is very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to investigating whether we can directly control matter on the atomic scale.

Nano-engineered materials offer extraordinary new capabilities for the improvement of energy generation and efficiency. The use of high surface-to-area ratio carbon nanotubes in battery electrodes generates an increase in electricity output over traditional electrodes.

Some of the segments of the energy industry where nanotech is being used to include:

  • Oil and gas extraction
  • Solar power
  • Fuel cells
  • Wind power
  • Thermoelectricity
  • Nanobatteries
  • Nanosupercapacitors
  • Hydrogen economy
  • Heat insulation and conductance
  • Energy security
  • Renewable energy
  • Nanocatalysts
  • Lower energy consumption
  • Lighting
  • Transportation

This R'search presents a complete analysis of the role nanotechnology plays in the energy industry in its research report Role of Nanotechnology in the Energy Industry.

With the global constraints increasing on energy sources, nanotech comes at a time when various segments such as oil and gas extraction could benefit highly from the addition of nanotechnology. In fact, carbon nanotubes are being touted as one of the most promising' nanomaterials for energy savings applications.
