Novel breakthroughs in the cutting-edge field of nanotechnology, as a cross-sectional technology, show potential for being applied across the whole value chain of the energy sector (energy sources, energy conversion, energy distribution, energy storage, and energy use). This book gives an overview of nanotechnological applications within the value chain of the energy sector and evaluates selected applications and their direct and indirect impacts on the energy sector. It presents selected nanotechnological applications that influence the energy economy significantly. Furthermore, the authors give a comprehensive description of the impacts and outcomes of selected nanotechnological applications on energy consumption, energy sources, energy supply, and the energy industry in Germany and show the potential of these applications for energy savings, improvement in energy efficiency, and the reduction of emissions until 2030.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Energy is one of the major challenges faced by our society, while being a complex problem involving many facets of technology, social, economy and environmental. While discussing many of these aspects, this book provides a strong coverage of the state-of-art developments, particularly in membranes for carbon capture and future requirements for their deployment"
-Prof. Joe da Costa - The University of Queensland, Australia

"Very impressive! By reading this book, the reader gets a complete overview of the diverse facets of nanotechnology applications in the energy sector. The chapters describe the whole range from technological opportunities and challenges to chance and risk aspects, market needs and options for future vision and scenarios by applying nano-solutions. A valuable contribution in a quite new and promising technological application area."
-Dr. Gerd Bachmann - Zukunftige Technologien Consulting, Germany
