Energy Storage – Supercapacitors

Cutting-edge Energy Storage Technology

CIC engineers, furnishes and installs supercapacitor based energy storage systems. The long service life and high usable capacity of supercaps equates to 5-10x lower lifetime cost of energy compared to chemical batteries, which wear out comparatively quickly.  Supercaps charge rapidly increasing the viability of renewables. When paired with fossil fuel generation, supercaps can reduce generator runtime by as much as 50%. Once installed, supercaps require virtually no maintenance.

  • Supercapacitor storage modules are a direct replacement for chemical batteries.
  • Supercapacitor based modules are non-toxic and non-volatile
  • Supercapacitor modules can last up to 45 years while delivering unprecedented performance across a broad range of industrial, commercial and residential applications.
  • Supercapacitors are a safer and more efficient solution for solar + storage, backup power, peak shaving and energy arbitrage applications.
  • Supercapacitor based storage is the lowest cost energy storage system in the world.
  • CIC is a certified installer of Kilowatt Labs and Supercapacitor Energy L.L.C. products in the USA.

The Obvious Choice for Stationary Energy Storage

  • Reliable and stable energy storage. In locations with grid access, can be deployed to reduce by leveraging using time of use arbitrage. Superior performance and cost savings make supercaps the obvious choice for standby power in critical infrastructure.
  • Can be deployed at any scale and in any location.
  • Can be deployed with any combination of generation sources from exclusively renewables to a combination of renewables and fossil fuel.
  • When deployed in remote locations with no grid access, can store electricity from 100% renewable generation, reducing or eliminating dependency on fossil fuel-based generators.
  • Categorized as a long-term asset due to long cycle life of the storage.
