8/16/2016 Can Supercapacitors Surpass Batteries for Energy Storage?

Maxwell Technologies’ supercapacitors are used for regenerative-braking energy storage in the Beijing subway system. China Railway Rolling Stock Corp. (CRRC-SRI) leverages Maxwell’s 48-V modules (Fig. 5) in two sets of regenerative-braking energy-storage devices for the system’s No. 8 line, an urban rail network that runs north-south through China’s capital.

8/15/2016 Maxwell Technologies Delivers Regenerative Braking Energy Storage for Beijing Subway System

Maxwell Technologies Inc. recently announced its ultracapacitors are used for regenerative braking energy storage in the Beijing subway system. As part of the strategic partnership with China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation Maxwell announced last year, the companies continue to collaborate to develop next-generation capacitive energy storage solutions for the China rail market.

8/2/2016 Maxwell delivers ultracapacitor-based energy storage for Beijing subway system

Like cars, trains waste large amounts of energy during braking. Until now, however, there has been no practical way to recover this energy by using regenerative braking. Locomotives do not carry large batteries, and they are typically connected to an electrical grid that can’t handle quick bursts of energy. Ultracapacitors, which offer extremely high charge/discharge rates and long cycle life, could provide a solution.

7/25/2016 Hybrid Energy Storage System Combines Ultracapacitors and Batteries

Investment in grid-level energy storage is expected to triple over the next five years, with a multitude of players delivering a wide variety of technologies, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. Duke Energy recently installed a hybrid energy storage system (HESS) that combines high-capacity batteries with fast-responding ultracapacitors. The pilot project will provide peak demand response, load shifting, and support for a utility-owned 1.2 MW photovoltaic array.
