How Nanotechnology, Especially Carbon Nanotech, Will Aid the Wind Industry


Iona Kaiser, an author of the new McDermott Nanotechnology Group report on nanotech patent literature, in this podcast called the report’s most surprising takeaway that “in the energy space, most nanotechnology innovations that you hear about in the news are either for energy storage or renewable energy. But what we’ve seen in our practice … is that nanotech patent activity in the petroleum exploration space is comparable to that of energy storage.” Ms. Kaiser added that “nanotech is permeating the wind sector by way of materials for more efficient turbines and energy storage and transmission to utilize the energy produced.” Hear the full interview
