Compact system for energy storage

Supercapacitor is a compact system as alternative to large hydro storage reservoirs
Hydro Storage Reservoir capability are limited by geography and can be efficiently supplement by Energy Caps storage.

At 2nd International Symposium on Enhanced Electrochemical Capacitors – ISEE’Cap2011 June 12, 2011, he explained us that a capacitor system could store the energy in a 20 times smaller volume than a water reservoir with 300 meters of fall. With the Energy Caps supercapacitor, we expect to still improve this ratio several times. Dr John R. Miller also explained to attendees that a capacitor storage system could store energy during peak of production each day and restitute this energy during peak of consumption. Demonstration 5000 cycles without significant performances losses could be sufficient to ensure 20 years of life time to the system.
