The impending energy crisis brought on by the running out of finite and non-homogenously distributed fossil fuel reserves and the worldwide increase in energy demand has prompted vast research in the development of sustainable energy technologies in the last few decades. However, the efficiency of most of these new technologies is relatively small and therefore it needs to be increased to eventually replace conventional technologies based on fossil fuels. The required efficiency increase primarily relies on the ability to improve the performance of the functional materials which are at the heart of these technologies. The purpose of this book is to give a unified and comprehensive presentation of the fundamentals and the use and design of novel materials for efficient sustainable energy applications, such as conversion, storage, transmission, and consumption. The book presents general coverage of the use and design of advanced materials for sustainable energy applications. Thus, the book addresses all the relevant aspects, such as materials for energy conversion, storage, transmission, and consumption.

Editorial Reviews

¿This book is a great introduction to energy materials, and I would certainly recommend it to my students. With simple prose, useful diagrams, and essential equations, this book is not a mere summary of current energy materials applications, but a tool for students and for those working in the field. This book explores how the fundamental materials research fields of energy generation, energy storage, and energy conversion are interlinked in a complex relationship, and how this relationship must adapt to a landscape of ever-increasing world energy consumption.¿ --Dr. Suman-Lata Sahonta, University of Cambridge, UK ¿This book is a comprehensive collection of the latest advancement in the materials science research for energy applications. It comes at a unique point in time when the search for sustainable alternative sources of energy could not be more relevant. This is an interesting introduction to both conventional and exotic applications written by recognized authors in the field and also provides a solid background and in-depth discussion of various topics.¿ --Dr. Giorgio Ercolano, Universit¿e Montpellier, France
