ECCAP Symposium

Large EC Capacitor Technology and Application

Session 1:

Advances in EC Capacitor Materials and Cell Design

 

Tuesday June 7, am

 

To enhance the value proposition of EC Capacitors by boosting cell performance, improvements in electrode capacity, power performance, electrolyte properties, electrode technology, and cell design are desired. In this session, we review the latest advances in materials, including the development of low-cost materials and processes to meet the pricing threshold of most markets, and in cell designs, including development of advanced asymmetric ECs:

Session 2:

New EC Capacitor Products and Business Development

Tuesday June 7, pm

 

In this session we review new capacitor products and EC business development. Leaders from key companies will discuss future products and business strategies as they expand their product offerings to support growth of energy-efficient industrial, utility, and transportation-related energy storage systems.

Session 3:

EC Capacitor Storage System Applications

Wednesday June 8, am

 

EC Capacitor modules are designed to optimally meet energy-storage requirements of specific applications at the highest level of reliability and lowest possible cost. In some applications, the EC Capacitor is the only energy-storage technology used while in others it is combined with power generation or battery storage. We review in this session EC module design and system engineering to meet performance goals of key applications, including those related to transportation, to industrial energy conservation, and to the utility grid.

Cleaning up electromagnetic pollution by containing the emissions with a thin coating of a nanomaterial called MXene

MXene is a nanomaterial that is both thin and light, but also has the unique ability to block and absorb electromagnetic radiation, which makes it the perfect for use as shielding in electronics devices.

 According to the authors, when electromagnetic waves come in contact with MXene, some are immediately reflected from its surface, while others pass through the surface but they lose energy amidst the material’s atomically thin layers.
