Energy storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for use later. A device that stores energy is sometimes called an accumulator. Energy comes in multiple forms including radiation, chemical, gravitational potential, electrical potential, electricity, elevated temperature, latent heat and kinetic. Energy storage encompasses converting energy from forms that are hard to store to more conveniently or economically storable forms. Bulk energy storage is dominated by pumped hydro, which accounts for 99% of global energy storage. Efficient energy storage is one of the key points to be solved for a successful development of renewable energies. In addition, the increasing demand for energy sources to power various portable equipment for microelectronics, safety, medical applications, army, smart phones, telecommunications, tools, etc.

Next-generation materials include superomniphobic materials which are inspired by water bugs, super-light materials and active materials that react to changes in their environment and smart materials. Auxetic materials when stretched convert into a thicker perpendicular to the applied force that arises due to their hinge-like structures. Auxetics are useful in applications such as body armour, packing material, robust shock absorbing material, and sponge mops, knee and elbow pads. Thermally activated bimetals (Thermo-bimetals) allow for panes of glass capable of becoming shades when exposed to the sun.

Material science plays a significant role in metallurgy. Powder metallurgy is a term that covers varied methodologies in which materials or components are made from metal powders. The metal removal processes can be avoided to decrease the costs. Pyro metallurgy embraces thermal treatment of minerals and metallurgical ores and concentrates to bring about physical and chemical transformations in the materials to allow retrieval of valued metals. A broad data of metallurgy can support us to extract the metal in a more possible manner. The extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth is called as Mining and Metallurgy is the field of Materials Science that deals with physical and chemical nature of the metallic & intermetallic compounds and alloys. Diverse methods and skills used in the extraction and production of various metals are extraction of metals from ores, purification; Metal casting Technology, plating, spraying, etc. in the series of processes, the metal is subjected to thermogenic and cryogenic conditions to analyses the corrosion, strength & toughness of the metal.

Emerging technologies are categorized by fundamental novelty, comparatively fast growth, consistency, prominent impact and ambiguity. Characterization refers to the broad and general process by which a material's structure and properties are probed and measured. It is a fundamental process in the field of materials science, without which no scientific understanding of engineering materials could be determined. The scope of the term often varies; some limit them to techniques which study the microscopic structure and properties of materials, while others use the term to refer to any materials analysis process including macroscopic techniques such as mechanical testing, thermal analysis and density calculation. The scale of the structures observed in materials characterization ranges from angstroms, such as in the imaging of individual atoms and chemical bonds, up to centimeters, such as in the imaging of coarse grain structures in metals.
