Researchers from the Illinois Sustainable Technology Centre used wood waste to produce super capacitators. These supercapacitators generate the same effect as advanced activated-carbon units.
Made by the team from biochar and waste products, they can be used for electronics and solar- and wind-power energy storage and distribution. Trees can be effectively used for sustainable energy storage, or for converting it to biofuels for use in generators and even vehicles.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
