Battery materials and recycling company Godi India said it is to manufacture 3000F (farads) high-power supercapacitors at its Hyderabad facility. It claims this is a first for India.
Integrating Godi India’s supercapacitors with battery packs would improve battery life in electric vehicles (EVs) and renewable energy storage system (ESS) applications, the company said in a statement.
“Godi India is producing cost-effective and plant-based Carbon-Carbon supercapacitors using water-based electrode processing. We have a variety of supercapacitor products ranging up to 3000F. At present, we are in the process of developing high-voltage lithium-ion capacitors as well,” said Mahesh Godi, founder and CEO of Godi India.
“We are also working on hybrid capacitors with higher energy densities to replace lead-acid batteries in wide range of the applications.”
Godi said the estimated global market size of supercapacitors will be $25 billion by 2030. As India is the fourth largest automotive maker and third largest energy consumer in the world, it is estimated that the supercapacitor market will grow by more than 16% compound annual growth rate in the next five years with market size of $5 billion, said Godi.
Mahesh Godi added: “Godi India is planning to commission 200 kWh of supercapacitors production facility to cater to various local requirements and export markets. Godi India is also keen to develop custom-designed supercapacitor products as per strategic segment requirements and aiming to localise 100% supply chain of the supercapacitors manufacturing in the next year.”
The company claims to be the first Indian company to get BIS certification to sell lithium-ion cells made with home grown technology.
