Abstract

New materials hold the key to fundamental advances in energy production and storage, both of which are vital in order to meet the challenge of global warming and the finite nature of fossil fuels. Nanomaterials in particular offer unique properties or combinations of properties as electrodes and electrolytes in a range of energy devices. Through innovation, the efficiencies of present technologies can be improved and discover new ways by which mankind can prosper. Nanotechnology provides researchers with the opportunity to attain sustainable development, thus overcoming one of the greatest challenges of modern times, by using some of the simplest and smallest available means. Nanotechnology, known as paying attention to structures technology of the twentieth century, owing to benefits such as being potentially inexpensive, effective, and promising for to come. Hence, many companies and researchers are getting curious day by day in order to explore especially its energy application. Indeed, to minimize energy waste, it should become common and applicable as soon as possible in spite of the fact that it is quite a new technology.
