The world population is increasing and burst of portable electronic devices, automobile and other industries, the consumption of energy in many forms has been intensively escalated. The world energy sources are being consumed fast and this has put the world in a ditch of energy crisis. On the other side, the availability of sustainable energy is crucial for the economic growth and industrialization, at the end of day sufficient and inexpensive energy is the most important demand of today. So this is the time to conserve the nonrenewable energy sources as well as to find the alternative sources of energy production and storage. It needs to response of modern society and emerging ecological concerns, the new, minimum-cost, and environmentally friendly energy conversion and storage systems should be investigated, and research and development of this field should be rapidly accelerated. Tailored characteristics of nano materials and compound at the nanometer scale, offer unique properties and will play a vital role in the development of new energy technologies for energy production and storage. The objectives of the research have to introduce the nanomaterial for energy production & storage. At the last there have a great potentiality to produce energy & storage by nanomaterials.
