Charge kinetics is a critical factor that determines working efficiencies of energy materials in their various applications. It is governed by electronic structures of the materials of interest and can be fine‐tuned via purposeful adjustment of electronic structures. Recent advances in the development of energy materials with desirable electronic structures to steering charge kinetics toward specific applications are highlighted here. Two key strategies are presented: one is through the tuning of energy states and the other is to control spatial distributions of charges. Each strategy is described by several different schemes. Finally, the challenges and perspectives in designing energy materials with fine control of charge kinetics are discussed.
