Purpose and goal
This project is the initial step in the development of a green and safe energy storage technology based on water-electrolyte supercapacitors. The goal is to fabricate, characterize and optimize superior carbon electrode materials, which will be further integrated into water-electrolyte supercaps. Another goal is to establish a network of partners from different industries and institutions, which, in the long-term, will help us to advance our technology to the level needed for market entry.
Expected results and effects
This project will result in the development of a prototype of the water-electrolyte supercap with optimized characteristics, whose performance will be tested under some relevant conditions. A consortium of partners, able to carry out a full scale R&D project on further technology development, will be established. Most promising strategies for technological and business model development will be identified advancing us closer to bringing our environmentally benign technology to people.
Planned approach and implementation
The project will be carried out by partners having a unique expertise. The project activities will be organized in a number of work packages, which will concentrate on lab experiments, materials fabrication and characterisation; assembling and testing of supercapacitors, validation of our technology with potential users, establishing a partner network for prototyping; product development and testing; analysis of possible strategies and identifying the most promising ways of further development.
