The market for alternative energy technologies has grown significantly in the last 20 years and is now of increasing importance due to the threat of global warming and the reliance on finite conventional energy sources such as fossil hydrocarbon fuel and coal.

More Details

Nanomaterials are enabling major research breakthroughs in wind and solar energy, fuel cells, thermoelectrics, batteries and supercapacitors, which are now beginning to translate into tangible products. Due to their unusual mechanical, electrical and optical properties nanomaterials are being incorporated into new, low-cost and environmentally friendly energy conversion and storage systems, promising greater efficiency than current technologies. The world market for these systems was $203.7million in 2010 and is estimated to rise to $2280million by 2017.
