Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Impacts-Technology Sector Evaluation: Energy

The ObservatoryNANO report on the Energy technology sector summarizes the technologies and applications involving nanotechnologies in six sub-sectors including: Photovoltaic, Thermoelectricity, Fuel cells, hydrogen production & storage, Batteries & supercapacitors, Fossil fuel & nuclear energy, Energy harvesting.  The Environment, Health & Safety analysis of the energy technology sector considers the nanomaterials outlined therein within the context of their application, and provides commentary on the hazard and exposure potential for the material in question.

OBSERVATORYNANO

The aim of the OBSERVATORYNANOI project was to support policy makers through the provision of wide-ranging scientific and economic analysis of nanoscience and nanotechnology developments, together with the assessment of ethical and societal aspects, impacts on environment, health and safety, as well as developments in regulation and standardization. The project focused on 10 technology sectors: Aerospace, Automotive & Transport; Agrifood; Chemistry and Materials; Construction; Energy; Environment; Healthcare; Information and Communication Technology; Security; Textiles

About nanopinion

  • nanopinion is an EC-funded project bringing together 17 partners from 11 countries with the aim of monitoring public opinion on what we hope from innovation with nanotechnologies. The project is aimed citizens with a special focus on hard-to-reach target groups, which are people who do not normally encounter and give their opinion nanotechnologies at first hand.
  • Dialogue is facilitated online and in outreach events in 30 countries presenting different participatory formats.
  • To promote an informed debate, we also run a strong press & social media campaign and offer a repository with more than 150 resources.
