Graphene and its derivatives have been the subject of extensive research in fundamental science and have viable applications in current and future technology. The exceptionally high electronic and thermal conductivity, optical transparency, and high specific surface area, combined with excellent mechanical flexibility and environmental stability leave graphene poised to be a material of the future. This perspective introduces the importance of graphene electrodes, discusses the synthesis of graphene and transfer onto desired substrates and the role of graphene in electrodes for a broad range of flexible devices such as photovoltaic, electronic, and electrochemical energy storage.
