Energy, the environment, and the economy have been considered the fatal factors in industrial production. The shortage of resources and environmental pollution have become the social issues of world concern; they have seriously affected sustainable development. Modern industry aims at protecting and greening the environment, promoting and recycling economy, and saving and making full use of energy. This means that there are many challenges to be faced in the 21st century; one of them is energy, which plays an indescribable role in the rapid and steady development of a country. Energy promotes the development of various industries; at the same time, it also causes environmental pollution. To effectively deal with problems such as energy waste and environmental damage, an effective solution is needed to reuse resources, improve their utilization rate, reduce energy consumption and mitigate environmental pollution. This Special Issue will cover smart materials used for energy and environment applications, which is a hot topic of current research.
