Can supercapacitor-based storage really replace chemical batteries?
Kilowatt Labs is headquartered in New York City, with production facilities in Dubai producing supercapacitor-based energy storage modules. Supercapacitors, or supercaps for short, are high capacity capacitors, a technology as old as the more familiar lead acid battery. Until now various limitations have prevented the adoption of supercaps for anything other than a small number of power applications, Kilowatt Labs claim to have made a breakthrough which enables the use of supercaps appropriate for energy storage. TowerXchange sat down with Omer Ghani, Managing Director at Kilowatt Labs to discuss what their innovations mean for cell site energy.
