1/27/2016 World’s 1st MW-scale ultracapacitor wind farm ESS to be installed in China

The ESS will use 1,152 Maxwell 56V/130F ultracapacitor modules to stabilise short-term power output fluctuation. The ultracapacitors can operate and store energy at -40 C, operate at up to 40 C and store at up to 70 C. A subsidiary of China Guodian Coporation (CGC), one of China’s five largest power producers, has selected US-based Maxwell Technologies’ ultracapacitors for the project in a location that has not yet been revealed.

1/22/2016 Ford Adds Start Stop Technology To 2017 F 150 With Eco-Boost

Ford has announced it will use start stop technology on every 2017 F 150 it sells with a turbocharged Eco-Boost engine. That includes the 2017 F 150 Raptor. Since the EPA fuel economy testing procedure does not include coming to a complete stop and then starting up again, the start stop technology will probably have little or no affect on official fuel economy ratings. Typically, start stop systems increase gas mileage and lower carbon emissions by 4 to 5 percent.

1/22/2016 3 countries are capturing wind to power all our futures.

Energy company Maxwell Technologies recently announced that it had been selected by a Chinese electric company to build the world's first megawatt-scale, ultracapacitor-based wind farm energy storage system.

1/21/2016 Ultracapacitors Vital To 48 Volt Mild Hybrid Systems

While the automotive world is focused on lithium ion batteries that can power a car for 200, 300, or more miles, some companies are focusing on so-called mild hybrids. Those are cars that use a 48 volt system. Instead of an electric motor integrated with the transmission, most of them employ an alternator that can double as an electric motor to help move a car forward from rest. The first few hundred feet after a dead stop contribute a disproportionate amount of carbon dioxide emissions, compared to operating at a steady rate of speed on the highway.

1/20/2016 Energy Storage Industry Off and Running in January 2016

With almost 3 GW of energy storage capacity either in operation or planned, analysis firm IHS believes the energy storage market will rise significantly in the near future.

1/13/2016 2+2=5: ultracapacitors and batteries combine

Demand for ultracapacitors in the automotive industry is soaring. This is primarily due to their use in regenerative braking systems, stop-start systems and the increasing amounts of electrification in internal combustion engine (ICE) architectures. In turn, growing use of ultracapacitors will fuel demand for batteries, as a combination of the two can enable numerous benefits.
