I heard Graphene Oxide can be used in energy storage?

Because it’s relatively inexpensive GO makes for a great anode in disposable batteries and solar cells which will let them charge better and last longer. In a solid state GO can be made into tiny flakes. These flakes naturally attach to one another and can create an extremely stable yet foldable conductive paper-like substance with a large surface area. This makes GO a terrific material for the use of supercapacitor manufacturing as they’re able to store large quantities of electricity and are able to charge relatively fast.

Welcome to the forum, Zachary.

Yes. Graphene electrodes have been researched and seem quite usable, but Graphene Oxide nano-membranes are currently under research (a LOT in China - but also in the USA & Britain and, I guess, elsewhere). These seem to enhance the storage capacity of chemical storage systems.

There are a lot of theses and "learned" (rather technical) articles.
This one seems quite readable for a layman like me.

This query would have been better in the "Science and Technology" forum - but never mind, you will probably get some other answers here.

EDITED to add:
josafmac12 answered while I was composing my answer - a more detailed reply than mine.
So - welcome to the forum to you too, Josaf!

These two usernames appear to be a double act but I can't for the life of me see why.

Found on facebook...two young scientists in India have developed a fuel with graphene that can be used to drive cars, meaning thereby tahtmeans it can replace normal fuel.
