Researchers take steps towards a new energy storage device

Researchers from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) have taken steps towards developing a new energy storage device. The device is a hybrid supercapacitor designed to offer optimized capabilities when it comes to energy storage. Typically in electronic devices, energy storage uses batteries or supercapacitors that have their strengths and limitations. Batteries can store large amounts […]

MIT Uses Neutrons in Drive to Improve Energy Storage in Supercapacitors

Batteries contain chemicals that store and release electrical energy at relatively slow rates compared to capacitors, which are often used in applications requiring power to be delivered rapidly. Capacitors can charge and release energy quickly by using electric fields to store charges on negative and positive plates. The plates are separated by an electrolyte, a […]

Supercapacitors Rapidly Replace Batteries for Energy Storage

Along with automotive and IT applications, grid storage looks most promising as renewable energy sources soar higher — literally, in some cases. Those sources include airborne wind energy (AWE) generators tethered to drones or even kites, reaching stronger and more consistent winds aloft than conventional wind turbines. The Italian company KiteNRG is developing an AWE […]
