Advances in Nanotechnology Can Provide Clean Energy Resources and Sustainable Development

Advances in nanotechnology can provide clean energy resources and sustainable development The greatest threat and the biggest technical challenge facing the world in this century is how to provide clean, affordable energy supply, which is sustainable and universally available. The rate of growth in global energy demand runs the risk of outpacing affordable, stable supplies unless we can achieve breakthroughs not only in conservation and evolutionary improvements in terms of efficiency of existing resources, but also revolutionary new breakthroughs. Energy resources are vital to sustaining worldwide economic growth, progress, peace and global security in the 21st century. There is an urgent need for new technologies that can facilitate the development of cheaper, more efficient, and environmentally sound energy supplies. Read more…
