European firm Skeleton Technologies is set to bring an energy storage systems based on its patented SkelCap ultracapacitor technology to market.
Details of the launch are scant, but the German based company’s chief executive officer Taavi Madiberk said the product will be market ready ‘shortly’.
Ultracapacitor manufacturer Skeleton Technologies has won gold for being the best ‘smart green startup’ in Europe.
Based in Bautzen, Germany, and Tallinn, Estonia, the company claims to be the only manufacturer that uses nanoporous carbide-derived carbon, or ‘curved graphene’, in its ultracapacitor cells.
European firm Skeleton Technologies’ is closer to reaching it 20Wh/kg goal with the launch of an ultracapacitor range utilising graphene to boost energy density.
The patented graphene material boosts the capacitance of the SkelCap 4500 series to 4500 farads.
The series has been designed for mass-market applications and meets the industry standard of a 60 mm diameter cylindrical cell.
