Renewable energies are one of several applications of nanotechnology that grows very fast. David LePoire analyzes trends in renewable energies in his work "Exploring New Energy Alternative" and explains some areas in which nanotechnology is very useful. He says:
But that's not all, leploire further explains that nanotechnology might be useful for implementation in nuclear fission.
More than a report of the results this report seems more a window into the possibilities. And the possibilities offer a door to problems not yet exist.
