Abstract

Energy innovations with sustainable fundamentals are needed to fulfill energy demands for the coming decades. This leads to a seeking process for new knowledge and technologies in order to create incremental and breakthrough energy innovations. The question is what the role is of small-scale technologies (nanotechnologies) for these innovations? This paper examines in a brief and non-exhaustive manor the role and implication directions of small-scale technologies for energy innovations. First, the paper describes the necessity for energy innovations and small-scale technologies. Next, based on examples role and implication directions are discussed. The conclusion focuses on the outline presented.
