Since its isolation by Geim and co-workers, graphene has received a lot of attention from the research community as well as industry. Interesting and groundbreaking research has been published on graphene showing excellent properties and a wide range of applications. In this talk, we will discuss the possibility of usages of graphene as a replacement for graphite for well-established energy applications. We will discuss niche applications that we think graphene can make inroads for large-scale energy and environmental applications. We will also discuss the recent development of 3D printing for engineering these materials for few specific applications in health and safety.
