Nano-Energy Workshop 2010

Lehigh University - Iacocca Hall
September 13-14, 2010

The unprecedented surge in global energy consumption and increased awareness of climate change have pushed energy and the environment to the forefront of public debate. Over the next quarter century, it is
estimated that some $20 trillion in capital investment will be required to meet worldwide energy demand. For scientists and engineers, satisfying that demand while protecting the environment is a grand challenge that will shape research and educational priorities for decades to come, addressing all phases of the energy life-cycle --
generation, distribution, consumption, and associated environmental impact.

This workshop brings together preeminent experts and researchers exploring nanoscale solutions in this field of global significance.
Nanotechnology directly addresses society's energy needs through chemistry and materials -- catalysis, sorbent, and membrane research that supports cleaner energy sources and greener energy usage. Nanoscale
research in electrical engineering, physics, and photonics also has a significant role to play in handling the growing energy drain of cyberspace, and in finding better ways to harvest accessible, distributed sources of energy. Development of new materials, characterization techniques, and applications supports progress across
these areas.
