The environmental impact of a fossil-fuel driven economy is beginning to become a topic of major global concern. Within the scope of finding alternative means to power the planet, the requirement to convert and store energy sustainably represents one of the biggest challenges across the boundaries of the physical sciences and engineering. This special issue will focus on the recent research trend in energy materials from different aspects, synthesis of novel materials to evaluate their performance in energy storage devices. Materials scientists, chemists, physicists and engineers face the demand of finding new materials (at low cost) that will provide power more efficiently or store energy (for example as heat, electricity or indirectly as a fuel) safely and at maximum density. This special issue invites contributions in all areas of new energy materials from concepts and theoretical prediction through synthesis and characterization to new functionalities, improved properties and enhanced performance. Also the novel review paper in this field is interesting too. We invite researchers to submit original research articles, perspectives and reviews for this issue.
