Skeleton Technologies and Sumitomo Corporation Europe sign agreement to distribute graphene-based ultracapacitors

By mmillikin Skeleton Technologies signed a distribution agreement with Sumitomo Corporation Europe with the aim of providing energy storage solutions for the rapidly growing hybrid electric and electric vehicle industry.

With high power density, a recharge time of 2-3 seconds and more than one million life cycles, ultracapacitors are unique in their ability to not only reduce CO2 emissions but also increase performance and be cost-effective for manufacturers.

In electric vehicles, graphene-based ultracapacitors can be used in tandem with lithium-ion batteries, doubling the battery lifetime and downsizing the cell receiving the peak power from ultracapacitors and the long-term energy from the batteries.

Ultracapacitors play an
