Waste to Treasure:  Crayfish Shells to Store Energy

Waste to Treasure: Crayfish Shells to Store Energy

Other than a spicy night snack, the crayfish has been endowed with greater significance. Research has made it possible to use crayfish shell as the biological template for high-performance supercapacitors.

Stretchable Micro-Supercapacitors to Self-Power Wearable Devices

Stretchable Micro-Supercapacitors to Self-Power Wearable Devices

An alternative to batteries, micro-supercapacitors are energy storage devices that can complement or replace lithium-ion batteries in wearable devices. Micro-supercapacitors have a small footprint, high power density, and the ability to charge and discharge quickly.

Do Small Microgrids Need Wind Power?

Do Small Microgrids Need Wind Power?

Wind power has a major place in grid electricity production because very large units are used that are twice as efficient as the small units we used to see on houses, roadwork signs and so on.

The Billion Dollar Supercapacitor

The Billion Dollar Supercapacitor

Supercapacitors are only a business of around $0.5 billion. However, Geely Holdings has a new commitment to Maxwell Technologies, a Tesla company, for what may be at least $0.5 billion over the years for peak shaving supercapacitors for its hybrid cars made under Volvo and other brands.

Why Large Lithium-Ion Capacitors LIC Now Gain Major Orders

Why Large Lithium-Ion Capacitors LIC Now Gain Major Orders

Lithium-ion capacitors are typically devices with one Li-ion battery electrode and one supercapacitor electrode, both swimming in a lithium-ion battery electrolyte. Usually Asymmetric Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors AEDLC, they were first commercialised in 1999, the year IDTechEx was founded.

Upcycling Plastic Waste Towards Sustainable Energy Storage

Upcycling Plastic Waste Towards Sustainable Energy Storage

What if you could solve two of Earth's biggest problems in one stroke? Engineers have developed a way to recycle plastic waste, such as soda or water bottles, into a nanomaterial useful for energy storage.

Structural batteries as vehicle bodywork

Structural batteries as vehicle bodywork

Previously, we have discussed the widespread work on structural supercapacitors, noting that they have the advantage of not swelling and shrinking during charge-discharge unlike batteries.
