Sunvault Energy, along with Edison Power, announced the creation of the world's largest 10,000 Farad Graphene Supercapacitor. The companies declared that this development is the most significant breakthrough in the development of Graphene Supercapacitors to date.
Sunvault's CEO says that the technology can be defined as a hybrid, bringing the power density associated with a battery together with the high impact fast charging known to capacitors. He claims that at 10,000 Farads, a Graphene Supercapacitor is powerful enough to power up a Semi Truck while being the size of a paperback novel. the companies are focused on developing their technology and shrinking the size of the unit in the near future.These graphene storage units can be connected together like storage building blocks to form a larger form of electrical storage for many markets. The higher the Farad combined with the smallest sized unit allows an optimal building block design. Some initial markets of concentration for Sunvault Energy (in conjunction with the Edison Power Company) are the smartphone market, the electric car market, electric grid stabilization and the recently popularized concept of a home off the Grid with Solar.
Sunvault expects to have solved its building block configuration design base unit within the next month, and will move into the phase of product approval and manufacturing immediately following.
In April 2015, Sunvault entered into a collaboration with Edison Power and declared its intentions to revolutionize supercapacitor technology with aims to replace Li-ion batteries.
