Graphene in Energy Storage Applications
Graphene in large quantities as stacked graphene sheets contain defects and vacancies. Due to the method of synthesis, they are also called as reduced graphene oxide or functionalized graphene sheets. The required key features of energy storage applications are high energy and/or power density, long cycle life, and environmental benignity – as possible in graphene materials. Owing to all these, graphene has captured the imagination of researchers for energy storage applications.
“Graphene capacitors will be attractive for grid applications that require fast response time (milliseconds), high efficiency (over 95%), high power, long cycling life (more than thousands of cycles), and variation in the frequency caused by the power mismatch of supply and demand.”
Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM) works in partnership with its customers, using its knowledge and expertise to provide bespoke graphene dispersions and formats to deliver enhancements and benefits for a wide range of applications. The Group’s strategy is to target commercial applications in three core markets: coatings, composites and functional materials.
