Recent work at the University of Coventry has led to the discovery of a new supercapacitive material capable of storing 10 times more electrical energy than competing materials. Consequently, the patent-protected Cam-Cap supercapacitor is able to combine the large energy storage capacity of batteries with the rapid power delivery capabilities of capacitors to meet new customer needs that cannot be satisfied using other existing energy storage materials. The advantages of the Cam-Cap supercapacitors are particularly apparent in the rapidly expanding high performance energy storage markets associated with environmentally friendly alternatives in the transport and power generation industries.
