Polymers for Energy Harvesting and Storage

Polymer materials, together with their composites, are emerging as an important role in the field of energy applications. They hold the potential to provide versatile solutions for the challenges encountered in the fields of both energy storage and energy harvesting. Particularly, the booming of flexible electronics calls for a consistent and reliable power supply. Thus, various energy storage and harvesting systems with their respective characteristics serving as an indispensable component for these electronics are highly needed. Compared to inorganic materials, polymers and polymer-based composites exhibit the merits of easy-processability, intrinsic flexibility, low cost and structural tunability, revealing high potential in flexible electronics. These features also allow for easier assembly of highly-integrated multi-functional energy devices, thereby can promote the development of new energy techniques for practical applications.
