What is a Supercapacitor?
While the industry is enamored with Lithium-based chemical energy storage solutions, they quietly overlook the environmental damage and obvious limitations of chemical storage solutions. Simply put, chemical energy storage limitations cannot be overcome by new elemental mixes of minerals which inflict environmental damage on the earth from mining to disposal. Chemical energy storage added to renewable energy resources is another unsustainable endeavor analogous to moving from coal-fired generation to natural gas. The environment cannot recover from the damage either alternative brings.
ACES Energy promotes a fundamental shift in thinking and a real solution to advance the usability of renewable energy.
What we provide addresses the weaknesses inherent in chemical battery storage solutions, specifically, safety, longevity and limited cycling capabilities.
The products we represent are capable of daily charge/discharge cycles of 100% for up to one million cycles. Our solutions will provide many years of reliable service with little or no maintenance required. Attempting to meet this requirement, using Lithium Ion or any other chemical energy storage, is impractical and exceeds the capabilities of battery-based energy storage. Time will prove the futility of chemical-based energy storage.
Fundamentally, chemical-based energy storage is NOT practical, sustainable, or cost effective for a long-term solution.
How Supercapacitors address issues inherent in telecom backup energy installations.
In enclosures, Supercapacitors require no HVAC or integral liquid cooling due to a very wide operating temperature range. (-30C to +80C). Supercapacitor's charge rate is 8 - 15 times faster than lead-acid batteries, allowing them to reduce generator runtime by as much as 76%, creating substantial savings in generator fuel and maintenance costs. The table below compares various performance factors of Supercapacitors with chemical batteries.
