Nanotech Energy is a U.S-based supplier of graphene and graphene oxide materials and inks, and is developing graphene-enhanced batteries and microscopic supercapacitors for smartphones and biomedical devices.
Nanotech Energy was formed in 2014 to move research on graphene supercapacitors from the laboratory to the marketplace. Under a licensing agreement with UCLA, Nanotech is scaling up production of Laser Scribed Graphene (LSG) supercapacitors and micro-supercapacitors for real world applications. Prototypes have reportedly already been created and an operational factory is in development. Nanotech Energy’s proprietary process is based on patent and patent-pending technology.
Nanotech Energy's goals are to allow recharging of devices to be measured in seconds instead of hours, to recapture lost energy on a large scale, from wind, solar and wave systems, to produce a product that doesn’t leak or degrade with time and to have a significant social impact and create stakeholder value.
The company is involved with Fisker's new EV project, developing a graphene-enhanced battery/supercapacitor. However, the first line of Fisker's car (at least) was declared to not employ graphene in its energy mechanisms, despite initial reports.
