The World's Best Battery
Supercapacitor Energy Storage Systems
ACES is the sole FedGov distributor of a revolutionary supercapacitor energy storage technology. Supercaps significantly outperform all chemical-based batteries. They charge faster and can be cycled hundreds of thousands of times without degradation. They operate in extreme temperature environments and require no special handling or maintenance. They are infinitely safer because they generate no heat and have no risk of fire or explosion. Supercaps use eco-friendly, readily available carbon-based materials that are easily recycled after a long service life. There is simply no energy storage technology that offers a better ROI or lower operational total cost of ownership.
Since 2017, Supercap energy storage solutions have been deployed and tested around the world in some of the most remote and environmentally hostile locations proving out their very strong technical and operational benefits. ACES recognized the major advancements of this technology and became the sole distributor of Kilowatt Labs supercapacitor energy storage solutions to U.S. FedGov agencies.
Supercaps are delivering real-world operational value to the Telecom industry where remote cell tower sites are off-grid and are powered by a combination of solar PV panels, generators, and lead-acid batteries. The lead-acid batteries were replaced with Supercaps which significantly reduced generator runtime due to their rapid recharge rate.
One top tier Telecom company is saving over $75k in annual fuel costs at some cell tower sites due to significantly reduced generator runtime. All sites replacing lead-acid batteries with Supercaps also recognize a 50% reduction in space requirements and zero need for maintenance. Four other Telecom companies have committed to rolling out Supercaps in 2021. It is important to note Li-ion batteries are not an option in these remote sites due to fire risks.
Lowest Operational Cost By Far
Charging – Charges in minutes not hours – up to 60X faster than Lead Acid
Cycles – Can be charged and discharged well over 500,000 times with no degradation (100x more than Li-ion, 1000x more than Lead Acid)
DoD – 100% Depth of Discharge (DoD) means it can be fully discharged vs. 50-75% usable capacity for Lead Acid and Li-ion
Temperature – works without restriction in extreme temperatures from -22F to 176F
Lifespan – Expected lifespan of 25-45 years based on use with no degradation in performance or capacity
Materials – Made from graphene (carbon-based) – no hazardous materials or caustic chemicals
Noncombustible – No risk of thermal runaway, fire, or explosion
Handling - No special handling or requirements related to toxic, hazardous materials
Transportation - No transportation restrictions to include air transportation
Storage – No requirements for fire suppression systems or special cooling and monitoring
Stealthy - No heat signature and longer silent watch times due to reduction in generator runtime
Resilient – Can be punctured, smashed, short-circuited, and submerged and will still function
Nontoxic – No release of toxic gases that can be harmful to friendlies when damaged
Rugged – Works in harshest environments (22F-176F) submersible to 3 meters, battle-ready power for platforms from aircraft, to tanks to submarines
Source - No supply chain risk due to rare earth materials mined in remotely accessible conflict zones
Warehousing – 45-year shelf life with no special cooling or storage requirements and no performance degradation
Transportation - No air, land, sea, or space transportation restrictions from aircraft to submarines
Maintenance – No continuous charge maintenance, infrastructure, or labor required to sustain functionality or performance
Safe – No special procedures, clothing, or equipment to support fire suppression, hazmat containment, 1st Responders, etc.
Reuse – Can be repurposed after outlasting platforms it supports
TCO/ROI Risk Differentiators
Replacement – Eliminates several product replacement cycles over 25 years (3 for Li-ion, 7 for Lead Acid) and removes labor and costs associated with each cycle (procurement, shipping, storage, disposal, etc.)
LCOE – The Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE $/kWh) over 25 years is 7 times better than Li-ion and 30 times better than Lead Acid batteries
Efficient – Fast charging reduces generator run times up to 86% and significantly lowers costs associated with fuel, generator maintenance, and replacement costs
Warranty - Longest warranty available (25 years) with no charge cycle restrictions during the warranty period
Ecosystems – no costly risk mitigation ecosystems or certifications required to support the product across its lifecycle (HAZMAT procedures, battery disposal costs, certifications: UN/DOT 38.3, UL 9540A, IEC 62281, etc.)
