Large EC Capacitor Technology and Application
Tuesday, June 7 to Wednesday, June 8, 2011
Advanced Automotive Battery Conferences
AABC Europe 2011 – ECCAP Symposium
Overview & Highlights
Session 1: Advances in EC Capacitor Materials and Cell Design
Chairman: Rüdiger Kötz, Head of Capacitor Interface Group, Electrochemistry Laboratory, Paul Scherrer Institute
To enhance the value proposition of EC Capacitors by boosting cell performance, improvements in electrode capacity, power performance, electrolyte properties, electrode technology, and cell design are desired. In this session, we review the latest advances in materials, including the development of low-cost materials and processes to meet the pricing threshold of most markets, and in cell designs, including development of advanced asymmetric ECs.
Session 2: New EC Capacitor Products and Business Development
Chairman: John R. Miller, President, JME, Inc.
In this session we review new capacitor products and EC business development. Leaders from key companies will discuss future products and business strategies as they expand their product offerings to support growth of energy-efficient industrial, utility, and transportation-related energy storage systems.
Session 3: EC Capacitor Storage System Applications
Chairman: Dr. Michael Meinert, Head of R&D-group energy storage systems, Mobility Division, Industry Sector, Siemens AG
EC Capacitor modules are designed to optimally meet energy-storage requirements of specific applications at the highest level of reliability and lowest possible cost. In some applications, the EC Capacitor is the only energy-storage technology used while in others it is combined with power generation or battery storage. We review in this session EC module design and system engineering to meet performance goals of key applications, including those related to transportation, to industrial energy conservation, and to the utility grid.
