Energy Applications for Nanotechnology

Michael Bruce, senior advisor for finance in DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, said bringing in specialists in business development when working on public-private collaborations is more effective than the "technology incubators" commonly created by academic institutions working with private industry.

Bruce delivered the keynote for a new conference focused on the use of nanostructures in energy applications. Nanotubes, buckyballs and similar nano devices are familiar in applications such as thin films for solar photovoltaics, but nanomaterials also are used in electricity generation and transmission, said Nano Business Alliance vice president Vincent Caprio.
