Australia-based energy storage solutions developer EnyGy has been working on a graphene-enhanced supercapacitor that can provide "increased energy storage capacity within the same package size, known as enhanced energy density, enabling the realization of compact, fast energy storage", according to CEO Wiehann de Klerk.
The Company stated that the supercapacitor, called enyGcap, is currently undergoing trials, with a market launch expected in 2024.
“Utilizing graphene technology, enyGcap combines compactness with impressive power. With its remarkable energy density, our product holds the promise to revolutionize energy storage across a spectrum of applications, from electric vehicles and mass transit systems to data storage, wind turbine emergency pitch control systems, industrial equipment like cranes and elevators, and even space exploration – providing efficient fast energy storage for high-current, short-duration charge and discharge cycles”, stated Mr. de Klerk.
EnyGy reportedly worked with UL Solutions to obtain third-party, science-backed certification for the enyCap product line.
The product combines activated carbon electrodes with state-of-the-art electrolytes, delivering three volts of power.
