Energy informatics (EI) is relatively a blossoming and dynamic research area especially in today’s green manufacturing world. Using renewable energy and clean technology are the keys to a revitalization of the world manufacturing and job creation. Green manufacturing, which reduces resource use, waste and emissions and saving the energy, has become the priority for the manufacturers. Therefore, EI has come into a desirable solution. The fractional calculus (FC) is a mighty tool which can characterize the complex properties of the natural and social phenomena. In this paper, we have provided an overview on the current EI by describing current research topics and methods and then pointed out an outlook of how this new field might be evolved with FC in the coming future.
