Abstract

Most energy sources that the world relies on are non-renewable sources that will be depleted in the very near future. Our energy consumption is rising at an exceptionally fast pace due to the increase in the world population coupled with the widespread urbanization noticed all over the globe. This necessitates new alternative methods of generating or conserving energy. How nanotechnology plays an important role in such a process will be discussed more in this section.
