Ultracapacitors: Emerging Technologies for High-Power Energy Storage

by Eric Smalley

Energy storage is a critical piece of the clean energy revolution, especially in transportation and renewable energy generation. Ultracapacitors are poised to play a pivotal role in energy storage by meeting the needs of high-power applications:

  • acceleration power and braking energy capture for hybrid and electric vehicles
  • acceleration power and braking energy capture for trains
  • smoothing the flow of energy from wind and solar onto the grid

ERN Research's in-depth report provides a comprehensive view the state of research and development in electrochemical capacitors for transportation, grid and industrial applications.

Find out:

  • how ultracapacitors will change hybrid/electric vehicles, rail and renewable energy
  • how ultracapacitor technology is changing
  • who is driving the change

ERN Research's Energy R&D Reports include comprehensive directories of companies and researchers with entries listing key research, intellectual property and funding.
