Pseudocapacitors have been proposed as a bridge between supercapacitors and batteries. There is a huge industrial interest in the development of next-generation energy storage devices, able to offer more energy density than supercapacitors, and reaching more power density level than lithium-ion batteries can achieve.
The pseudocapacitor technology can be used as an independent or auxiliary energy storage system. The technical improvement takes place in finding novel electrode materials to increase the energy density and power density as well as to reduce the cost. Large modules of assembling pseudocapacitors are expected to extend their applications to different sectors as renewable energy and smart grids.
The energy storage devices integrating our advanced nanomaterials, as electrode materials, have shown a remarkable improvement in capacitance and energy density (up to 3-5 times higher) compared with market available supercapacitors, while keeping the power density in similar ranges. Thanks to the capacitance and the energy density improvement, we are also able to improve the costs to performance ratio in a significant proportion.
Therefore, our highly sustainable, safety and eco-friendly advanced materials emerge as perfect candidates to manufacture electrodes, capable of offering the most appropriate balance between energy density and power density in energy storage systems, solving costs, and performance issues. Besides, our technology has proved its industrial viability for manufacturing our nanomaterials at pre-industrial scale.
