Peak Assist

Peak Assist

Ultracapacitors can relieve all of the peak power requirements from a primary energy source. In the case of a fuel cell, ultracapacitors are an enabling technology to allow a fuel cell-driven forklift to have enough power for lifting operations. In the case of diesel-driven forklifts or cranes, ultracapacitors reduce fuel consumption and/or reduce diesel engine size.
