Skeleton Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of high energy and power density ultracapacitors. The company provides green and cost-effective energy storage solutions for the automotive, transportation, industrial and renewable energy markets.
Skeleton Technologies’ SkelCap line of ultracapacitors are based on patented technologies of ultracapacitor design and advanced nanostructured carbon allowing for higher energy and power density than competitors. The company has devised a process that uses silicon carbide to make what they call "curved graphene".
In August 2016 Skeleton raised €13 million, which brings total financing to €26.7 million. In February 2017 Skeleton received a €15 million loan from the Europrean Investment Bank.
Skeleton Technologies’ high-performance supercapacitors are set to be launched into orbit as part of a European Space Agency project and are also available as part of a hybrid Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) for defence applications. In August 2015, Skeleton entered the commercial truck fleet market when it launched a graphene-based device that helps truck drivers start their engines after long periods of inactivity or in cold weather. In July 2016, Skeleton Technologies announced that it will join French firm Flying Whales’ programme to build a 60-ton Large Capacity Airship, or LCA60T, for the global transport market.
