The need of energy storage and related devices are increasing day by day, due to the expansion of global population. To deal with such universal crisis, current energy storage devices like supercapacitors need to be improved in their performances and qualities. In this regard, quantum dots (QDs) are extensively being studied, especially due to their excellent properties. The utilization of QDs in supercapacitors is huge as electrode material as well as for fluorescent electrolytes. Various QDs based composites have been made for the same, which includes doping with various metals, non-metals and carbon nanomaterials (CNMs) like graphene, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) etc. In the present chapter the current advancement and futuristic possibilities of supercapacitors have been mentioned extensively.
