Thank you, readers! The Top 5 Blogs from Our First Year

| Jessica Baris, Communications Specialist and Copywriter

We launched our blog a year ago, carving out a space to discuss ultracapacitor technology for energy storage. Today, we celebrate our first year of blogging.

Thank you to our readers for subscribing to MAXPower Weekly and following us over the months. Our authors enjoy sharing their insights on ultracapacitor technology and how it applies to the grid, renewable energy, automotive, trucking, rail, and UPS backup power applications. The Maxwell team is passionate about delivering the technology to industry and educating the energy storage community on the flexibility and energy-efficiency that ultracapacitor cells offer.

So, on to what we promise in this blog’s title. According to our analytics, these are the top five blogs of MAXPower Weekly’s first year:
