Improving Energy Transmission with Nanotechnology

Applications of nanotechnology are delivering solutions to the challenges that are facing society. Nanotechnologists are finding applications in traditional energy sources and are greatly enhancing alternative energy approaches to help meet increasing energy demands.

Enabled Nanotechnologies for Energy Harvesting

Nanotechnology research, development and application are relevant and potentially beneficial to almost every facet of our lives. Many benefits of nanotechnology rely on the possibility to alter the structures of materials at extremely small scales to achieve specific properties which improve the materials’ capabilities.

Greater Solar Energy Harvesting with Nano Electronics

A variety of sources are available for energy collection in natural world. One of the available renewable energy resources is solar energy, which is by far the most abundant. More energy is provided to the Earth by sunlight radiation within one hour than is consumed yearly by the entire human civilisation across the world.
