KiloWatt Labs

Kilowatt Labs Sirius energy storage modules are the world's first Supercapacitor based energy storage system. Supercapacitor based modules are non-toxic and non-volatile and can be a direct replacement for chemical batteries.

CIC is a certified distributor and reseller of Kilowatt Labs products in the USA. We design energy storage and power management solutions that deliver unprecedented performance across a broad range of industrial, commercial and residential applications.

Sirius Energy Storage provides a safer and more efficient storage for peak shaving, arbitrage, and solar + storage applications. Supercapacitor based storage is the lowest cost energy storage system in the world.

Sirius Supercapacitors offer unprecedented performance.

  • Can be deployed at any scale and in any location, independent of or connected to available infrastructure.
  • When deployed in remote locations with no or poor grid access, can supply electricity from 100% renewable generation, reducing or eliminating dependency on fossil fuel-based generators.
  • Can be deployed with any combination of generation sources from exclusively renewables to a combination of renewables and fossil fuel.
  • Categorized as a long-term asset due to long cycle life of the storage.
  • Delivers reliable and stable energy storage. In locations with grid access, can be deployed to reduce costs using time of use arbitrage. Syperior performance and cost savings make Supercapacitors the best choice for standby power for critical infrastructure such as wireless and data center applications etc.

Why Supercapacitors?
Lithium Hybrid
  • Anode and Cathode of same material
  • Uses Faradic Capacitance
    • Anode and Cathode are separated internally
    • No parasitic reactance or thermal runaway
  • 94% Graphene with 6% Lithium doping
    • Lithium is used in trace amounts in diffuse layer
    • Adds surface area to the Anode to store the charge
  • Anode and Cathode of dissimilar material
  • Uses chemical oxidation reduction (redox)
    • Potential for thermal runaway fire exists
    • Parasitic Reactance "plates" the Anode
  • Up to 200 grams of Lithium per kWh stored
    • Lithium exists in the liquid electrolyte of the battery
    • As electrons exit the battery, protons move internally
