For years we have been storing energy in very insufficient batteries that cannot store a ton of electricity and now thanks to nanotechnology we are eventually going to be able to create nano batteries. nano batteries are very compact batteries down to the molecular scale and because they are so compact they can store a ton more energy.
Nano technological Scientists like Ray Kurzweil believe that we will have advanced nano batteries by the year 2030 and the amount of energy they will be able to store will exponentially rise every year. We actually already see nano batteries being used today. There used in devices such as iPods/iPhones/iPads and they are also used in various devices like watches, and even some Portable computers like laptops and netbooks. But just imagine what these batteries will be like in 20 to 30 years and how much energy they will be over the store.
The more and more we learn about the carbon structure and how we can implement them at the batteries the better the nano batteries will become. Some scientists even predict that we will have a battery that will be up to run a car for a full week! Imagine how that would impact the car industry and even any transportation industry like airplanes and trains and even space travel throughout the universe. Nano batteries could ultimately change our lives.
We really need an alternative to the fossil fuels and nano batteries could provide strong enough batteries and fast enough charging so that we could just use electricity we already have hybrid cars but their batteries are very weak and a partially run on gas. Some of our cars are electric but they can only hold a certain amount of energy because the battery takes up too much space the car or is just too insufficient. I even think that someday we could have cars with solar panels on the so the battery charges outside so you can drive. The nano battery would be so powerful that it could almost never have enough energy. I believe that someday we will never have to buy gas again and it will all be a electric and mostly solar powered.
Nano batteries are truly the future of energy storage and they’re going to greatly impact our lives in the 21st century and beyond. Our world is becoming too dependent on fossil fuels and we need more advanced electrical appliances to take us further.
