Satisfying the ever-growing demand for energy in a sustainable, eco-friendly and economical way has been a major challenge of the 21st century. Trends have shown that sustainability, economy and eco-friendliness depends on the deployment of materials which thanks to continued technological innovation, evolves continually. As such, materials, therefore, play a very important role in the quest for this development unequivocal to the fact that the features of our modern industrialization are our escalating extravagance of materials. Globally, the world’s primary energy production is; oil, coal and gas as a major source of environmental pollution not ruling out its short life-span. As such it is imperative for a developing country like Nigeria in the bid to conform to global practice on pollution and secure the future of the energy sector to embark on the quest for sustainable energy. This paper attempts to render the interrelationship between materials and the quest for sustainable energy while highlighting how a country like Nigeria can tap into it as both a solution to current power issues and as recourse for future energy development.
