Reduction of energy consumption is one of key issues for the sustainable development. Recent technological development in manufacturing technology has enabled engineers to create surfaces with defined geometrical structures. This paper presents a review of the currently available literature surrounding the research of functional structural surfaces in relation to the beneficial properties, such as frictional reduction and drag reduction. A particular focus is put on rolling and grinding which provides a new way for fast structural functional surface creation. It was found that some particular structures on functional surfaces possess beneficial functions that could reduce energy consumption. Some recent investigations in LJMU are presented to demonstrate the benefits could be acquired from microstructural surfaces.
