Webinar 19 August: Functional Materials for Supercapacitors 2015-2025
Aug 08, 2014
Webinar Title: Functional Materials for Supercapacitors 2015-2025.
Date: Tuesday 19 August.
Presenter: Dr Peter Harrop, Chairman, IDTechEx.
Increasingly, supercapacitors are replacing some lithium-ion batteries and tantalum electrolytic capacitors and they will replace many aluminium electrolytic capacitors. That means that supercapacitors and their variants could become a business of tens of billions of dollars, particularly replacing up to 50% of lithium-ion batteries and making new applications possible within 15 years. Above all, that is a business opportunity for companies making the functional materials. For this reason, the chemicals and materials industry should be intensely interested in this new opportunity. It may even provide an escape route for those involved in the seriously over-supplied lithium-ion battery business.
This webinar looks at the opportunity, based on the research carried out this year for the new IDTechEx report, Functional Materials for Supercapacitors / Ultracapacitors / EDLC 2015-2025.
It will cover the following aspects:
• Supercapacitor and supercabattery structure.
• Pure EDLC sometimes leveraged by pseudocapacitance and lithium-ion faradaic energy storage.
• Material needs - conventional and structural supercapacitors.
• Best energy density that might be achieved in volume production in the next ten years and in 15 years from now.
• Which electrode functional materials best leverage the next-generation electrolytes.
• Best candidate materials for high energy density or AC operation in saleable devices.
• Plans and forecasts.
We will be hosting the same webinar twice in one day, so please join which ever session is the most convenient for you.
