Research and Markets: Nanotechnologies for Sustainable Energy: Reducing Carbon Emissions Through Clean Technologies and Renewable Energy Sources

(Nanowerk News) Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c68307) has announced the addition of Nanotechnologies for Sustainable Energy: Reducing Carbon Emissions Through Clean Technologies and Renewable Energy Sources (Residential & Commercial Sector) to their offering.
"Nanotechnologies for Sustainable Energy: Reducing Carbon Emissions Through Clean Technologies and Renewable Energy Sources" examines the impact of nanotechnology on the quest for sustainable energy.
Through a detailed analysis of technologies both currently available and under development the report concludes that
* The major near-term benefit of nanotechnologies will be in reducing weight in the transportation sector with nanocomposite materials quickly diffusing across the automotive and aerospace industries
* Over the next seven years, highest growth opportunities will come from the application of nanomaterials to making better use of existing resources rather than generating new forms of renewable energy
* Highest growth rates will be in the development of renewable energy sources while the materials sector is already crowded
* Current applications of nanotechnologies will result in a global annual saving of 8 thousand tons of carbon dioxide in 2007, rising to over a million tons by 2014
