NanoAssociation for Natural Resources and Energy Security (NANRES) is an association of membership organizations dedicated to promoting the advancement of nanotechnology to address the energy and natural resource challenges, in the effort to create a more secure, globally competitive, and ecologically sustainable nation. NANRES is comprised of corporate and academic members in defense, clean energy, nanotechnology, finance, and environmental sectors. These forward-thinking leaders share a collective voice and interest in advancing nanotechnology in the U.S. marketplace. They are undertaking the challenges facing the US in the 21st century: expressly the pressing energy and environmental security and national security areas, which must be analyzed and strengthened.

Energy Security

Nanotechnology is the answer that will empower, strengthen, and secure our nations energy security condition. History has taught us that energy has the capacity to either empower or disable our military operations. This proves true in securing energy sources as well as in enhancing U.S. military efficiency. Innovations in energy and higher levels of efficiency allow our military to improve agility, force projection, and increase freedom in expedition.

NANRES seeks to address the clean energy and environmental needs of our nation and military through advocating the commercialization of energy security nanotechnologies. In so doing, NANRES will provide our nation access to reliable, efficient, and inexpensive alternative domestic sources of energy that will serve to strengthen our energy independence and power our military force to meet future energy challenges.
