In previous years we've seen that most of our popular stories involved energy applications. In 2018, however, we see a wide range of graphene applications: composites, sports equipment, thermal applications, audio - and of course energy applications.
We hope that 2019 will offer continued growth, more applications and increased adoption of graphene in a wider range of industries.
