This presentation will track the development of supercapacitors (ultracapacitors) from the mid-1980s to the present and project the likely future developments to achieve increased energy density. At each stage of the development, key innovations will be noted and their importance discussed. The past and present applications of supercaps will also be reviewed and future applications of advanced devices projected. Most present applications are in the industrial and consumer electronics areas which seem to be more open to innovation than the automotive area. The reasons for this situation will be discussed along with whether this might change in the future.
