Long-length nanofibers are able to form porous networks with high surface-area-to-volume ratios, and decrease diffusion lengths. While there are numerous techniques to create nanostructures, electrospinning is the only technique that allows fabrication of nanofibers at long-length scales. These uniquely shaped fibers are applied to several energy-related devices. This review is an in-depth summary of the uses of electrospun fibers in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), batteries, capacitors, fuel cells, and hydrogen storage devices. Developments in electrospinning technologies to create novel fiber morphologies are also discussed.

Keywords: capacitors; electrospinning; batteries; energy storage; fuel cells; hydrogen storage; solar cells
