Graphene-LED Setup Can Act As A Supercapacitor

Several scientific discoveries were made by accident, and we may just be in the middle of one.

Cairo University graduate Maher El-Kady had unintentionally connected a small piece of graphene to an LED with a wire, causing the graphene to act like a supercapacitor, which can store large amounts of electricity.

Capacitors till today have not been able to store as much electrical energy as conventional batteries, but because of this discovery, capacitors could now rival batteries in terms of storage capacity, without having to contain dangerous chemicals like acids, alkalis and toxic metals.

Product Development: Embracing product safety and compliance

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT: EMBRACING PRODUCT SAFETY AND COMPLIANCE Recent safety incidents on storage plants have raised concerns about the fire safety of battery storage systems. Such events are extremely rare compared to the cumulated global deployments of energy storage systems, which have reached more than 27 GWh by end of 2020 (Wood Mackenzie 2021). However, for…
