Development of High Energy/ High Density Supercapacitors for Automotive Applications

Supercapacitors are essential in electric vehicles for supplying power during acceleration and recovering braking energy. High power and sufficient energy density are required for both an effective power system but also to reduce weight. There are several issues to achieve a high performance/low weight power system that need to be addressed by various groups of scientists and engineers in an integrated framework. In this project, we have assembled a multidisciplinary Consortium of leading researchers, organisations, highly experienced industrialists, and highly active SMEs to tackle the problems. As a result, we are aiming at developing supercapacitors of both high power and high energy density at affordable levels by the automotive industry, and of higher sustainability than many current electrochemical storage devices.
