We address the challenge of sustainable and affordable energy by designing and manufacturing a robust and innovative Ultracapacitor. Ultracapacitors or Supercapacitors, are an emerging energy storage technology already being used for applications such as DC motor drives, UPS systems, and electric vehicles. Our Ultracapacitor cell technology is 0.1mm thick in size, the world's ever thinnest energy storage cell, but with high capacitance. Our technology, in the process of being patented, is built on nanotechnology and proprietary process. It is innovative in that a new set of ultra-powerful, ultra-light and ultra-conductive material are used through a patented proprietary manufacturing process. It achieved the highest energy density values ever reported on nano carbon material-based Supercapacitors dominated by the electric double layer mechanism, with minimal contribution from any redox-type pseudo capacitance mechanism. These energy density values are comparable to that of Lithium ion battery. It stores enough energy to outperform batteries and can outperform batteries in several key performance parameters such as power density, cycle life and temperature sensitivity.
Our new technology provides an energy storage device that stores as much energy as in a battery, but can be recharged or discharged in seconds or minutes. We believe that this is truly a breakthrough in energy storage technology. Our DLEC (Double Layer Electrolytic Capacitor) design is also more efficient and can be manufactured without metals and is environmentally benign relative to the metals in lead-acid, nickel-cadmium and lithium ion batteries. Its high specific capacitance, coupled with low cost and environmental friendliness, offers greater advantages over other transition-metal oxides that are currently being used for this purpose.
It will be deployed and applied in the grid energy (on-grid and off-grid as smart grid energy supply), renewable energy (as energy storage integrated into the renewable energy supply), transportation (as alternative to lead acid and lithium ion batteries for electric vehicles, buses, trucks, trains and aerospace/ aviation), telecommunications (as alternative to lithium ion batteries used in cellphones and cell towers).
vehicles, there is anxiety of driving range amid lack of fully deployed charging
infrastructure and safety of batteries that when not managed have propensity to explode resulting in thermal runaway due to temperature sensitivities. In the renewable energy
sector, the sun can only shine during the day and wind blows intermittently and
therefore effective storage with both high power and energy density is
required as an integrated form of energy storage system that is sustainable and affordable especially in the rural areas and remote populations unconnected from the grid. In the grid energy sector, the use of fossil fuel is unsustainable and
old infrastructure requires costly maintenance and is not keeping up with
growing populations and thus resulting in power outages and load shedding. The high cost of deploying and connecting electricity to the energy grid is not effective in other countries especially in Africa and therefore make access to electricity a challenge and exclusive. Our solution will address this problem by deploying smart-grid and off-grid energy supply management systems.
