Energy materials within the past meant high energy explosive materials utilized in detonation and alternative energy storage applications. Such energy cannot be regulated for extended period. Currently energy materials embody wide selection of advanced and novel materials for the generation and storage of electric power. Energy generation, management and distribution are the quickest evolving industries of recent times. The demand to develop parts and sub-assemblies for novel product across the energy sector is increasing. Analysis in Production of electricity from piezoelectric materials, Biomass, photo chemistry is studied widely in several universities.

Hydrogen can be utilized in fuel cells to produce power by a chemical reaction instead of combustion, generating only water and heat as byproducts. It can be used in cars, in houses, for mobile power, and in many more applications. Hydrogen can be produced using various, domestic resources—including fossil fuels, such as natural gas and coal (with carbon sequestration); nuclear energy; and other renewable energy sources, such as biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and hydro-electric power—using a wide range of processes. The overall challenge to hydrogen generation is cost. For cost-competitive transportation, a key driver for energy independence, hydrogen must be comparable to conventional fuels and technologies.

The comparatively recent shift toward exploitation nano technology with regard to the capture, transfer, and storage of energy has positive economic impacts on society. The management of materials that nano technology offers to scientists and engineers is one amongst the vital aspects of nano technology. Nano technology in energy materials is exhibiting raised potency of lighting and heating, increased electrical storage capability, and a decrease in the quantity of pollution from the utilization of energy.  Advantages like these build the investment of capital in R&D of nano technology a prime priority.

Growing energy requirements need augmented efforts on developing materials and technologies that target energy generation, energy conversion and energy storage. For instance, recently the International solar alliance, consisting of over 120 countries, has been committed $1 trillion as investment and it's committed to reduce the prices of solar energy for remote and inaccessible communities. The World Bank is playing a significant role in mobilizing over US $1000 billion in investments which will be required by 2030. In 2013 thin-film technologies accounted for around 9 % of worldwide utilization, whereas 91 % by crystalline Si (mono-Si and multi-Si). With 5% of the general market, CdTe holds over half the thin-film market, 2 % of CIGS and amorphous Si. As per a study, prepared by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), recent solar modules are valued at $15 billion in reusable material by the year 2050. IRENA estimates that PV panel waste, comprised largely of glass, might total 78 million tonnes globally.
