Nanotech's Answer Key to the Energy Problem

October 5, 2010 | State of the Market Report

The world is rapidly approaching collapse as our energy consumption steadily climbs and our fuel reserves run closer to exhaustion. Renewable energy generation and conservation will play their parts, but energy efficiency offers an attractive third option that should be a cornerstone of any plan to solve the energy crisis. Many nano-enabled products on the market today offer significant potential energy savings, and full adoption of six in particular could reduce total energy consumption for the U.S., Germany, and Japan by 12%. Under more realistic adoption scenarios, the same six products reduce energy consumption by 1.6% in 2020.
