Since many years the nanofluids rise an interest of the researchers in various areas from cosmetology through medicine to technics. In each area potential of the nanofluids depends on various properties, which may be utilized. Considering the technical applications, very important one is related to the energy systems. Present paper discusses the heat transfer enhancement as the main aspect of nanofluid potential in this area. It presents also new research direction regarding the magnetic field influence on a convection of the nanofluids. The experimental analysis gives promising results especially in the context of space applications.
