IEC Technology Report Nanotechnology:2013


Language: EN Nanotechnology in the sectors of solar energy and energy storage


Language: EN Nanotechnology brings significant benefits to energy storage and the overall solar energy sector for example in terms of improved materials’ efficiency and reduced manufacturing costs. Concretely, battery storage capacity could be increased, solar cells could be produced cheaper and their lifetime extended. This Technology Report outlines a whole range of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies, evaluating their role in addressing the energy challenge. Notably, it discusses their potential contribution to the successful integration of renewable energy and energy storage. The publication is intended for manufacturers of products for energy generation and storage as well as for energy regulators. This Technology Report was prepared by the IEC Market Strategy Board ( MSB ) together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI. The IEC White Papers and Technology Reports are available for free download .
