The developments and applications of new materials have resulted in significant effects on our consumption, conversion, and production of energy, our daily lives, our health, our use of technology, and our security. In short, materials play an increasingly important role in our everyday lives. It is clear that a manufacturing and innovation strategy which highlights advanced materials development is more likely to play a substantial role in future energy systems. This chapter is an essential part of the process to identify new opportunity for industry, government, and academia. It stands as a signpost to the future. In this chapter, future directions in energy materials are discussed in detail to understand the role of energy materials in future energy systems and sustainability.
