Radiant heating, as a significant thermal management technique, is best known for its high thermal effect, media-free operation, good penetration, and compatibility for different heated shapes. To promote sustainable development in this area, developing advanced infrared radiation material is in high demand. In this work, a lightweight, flexible dual-emitter infrared electrothermal material, graphene glass fiber (GGF), is developed by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method, with both graphene and glass fiber as the radiation elements. Large-area GGF fabric (GGFF) exhibits wavelength-independent high infrared emissivity (0.92) and thermal radiation efficiency (79.4%), as well as ultrafast electrothermal response (190.7 °C s–1 at 9.30 W cm–2) and uniform heating temperature. The superior radiant heating capability of GGFF to traditional alloy heating wires can achieve 33.3% energy saving. GGF can promote the development of efficient and energy-saving heat management technology.
