Final Report - HESCAP (New generation, High Energy and power density SuperCAPacitor based energy storage system)

Project ID: 241405
Funded under: FP7-ENERGY


This is the final report of the HESCAP project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The main objective of this project was to develop a supercapacitor based energy storage system, capable of storing ten times more energy than the reported State of the Art technology, while keeping the high power density, long life cycle and production cost of currently available supercapacitor systems.

The report initially summarises the project's aims and achievements. It then proceeds to describe the project results and notes significant achievements on the way including the fact that the project has demonstrated that physical post-treatment of CDC materials promotes a noticeable increase of specific surface and it also reduces the Vpless than1nm / Vpgreater than1nm ratio. This means that physically post-activated materials have a porous structure more open and should facilitate mass transport of ions through their pores. These are, in principle, very good characteristics for supercapacitor electrode materials. The report concludes with the potential impact of the project.
