German firm uses graphene for high reliability energy storage

German firm uses graphene for high reliability energy storage

Called SkelGrid, the system is based on the firm’s curved graphene ultracapacitor technology, which is designed to provide high power and energy density. Taavi Madiberk, CEO of Skeleton Technologies, writes: “In the semiconductor and electronics industries power quality is of utmost importance. A power outage lasting for under a second can damage all the products on the production line, and the losses are compounded by the unavoidable downtime of clearing the backlog and setting everything up again. On average, our customers face one such event per year.” The SkelRack power storage modules can be installed in industry standard 19-inch deep cabinets, and in 20 or 40 ft. containers to provide short-term power at the megawatt level. The system has maximum power ratings ranging from 520 kW up to 1500 kW. “In diesel generators, SkelGrid is ideally suited for starting and to bri...
