Supercapacitors

What are Supercapacitors?

SIRIUS SUPERCAPICITOR

  • Anode and Cathode of same material
  • Uses Faradic Capacitance
    • Anode and Cathode are separated internally
    • No parasitic reactance or thermal runaway
  • 94% Graphene with 6% doping
  • Cobalt is used in trace amounts in diffuse layer
  • Adds surface area to the Anode to store the charge
  • Improves energy density and self-discharge

LITHIUM HYBRID BATTERIES

  • Anode and Cathode of dissimilar material
  • Uses chemical oxidation reduction (redox)
    • Potential for thermal runaway fire exists
    • Parasitic Reactance "plates" the Anode
  • Up to 200 grams of Lithium per kWH stored
  • Lithium exists in the liquid electrolyte of the battery
  • As electrons exit the battery, protons move internally
  • Improves energy density and self-discharge

Sustainability benefits

ENABLING SUSTAINABILITY GOALS

Green – Non-toxic technology.

  • Carbon based graphene, paper, copper, aluminum

Increased efficiency of renewable power

  • Store energy when it is being produced – use energy when needed

Reduce the need for “SPINNING RESERVE”

  • Lessen dependence on coal & gas fired generation plants

Financial Benefits

THE COST ADVANTAGES OVER LEAD ACID BATTERIES

25 year lifetime reduces operational replacement costs

Reduces the need for HVAC
Supercaps have significantly reduced need for Conditioned air and can operate as high as 60C

Zero maintenance cost

Reduced fossil fuel
consumption
