The exponential growth in renewable energy use during the last decade resulted in an apparent shortage of energy storage systems to accommodate such an increase. Batteries are promising candidates for energy storage systems. However, they face low-abundance and lack innovative charge accumulation attributes. Such limitaions have driven researchers’ interest in exploring novel materials for next-generation re-energizeable secondary cells. This work summarises the progress made in developing materials for the new generation of batteries, such as high energy rechargabel batteries, composition of advanced flexible batteries, fast and flexible batteries, reusable and green batteries materials, and Light-assisted re-energizeable Battery.
