ERN's Emerging Energy Technologies Reports

Ultracapacitors:
Emerging Technologies for High-Power Energy Storage





"This is an outstanding review of current effort and recent progress in the fast advancing field of electrochemical capacitors intended for use in hybrid electric vehicles and other high power applications. It is up to date, it is assembled with skill and insight and should be of great use to individuals and corporate groups involved in the development of hybrid electrochemical energy storage devices."

- Nikola Marincic, founder, Redox Engineering
"Not just the usual market overview, but some good meaty explorations of specific innovations and specific companies. Tactically useful information for investors and industry participants. Definitely recommended."

- Rob Day, VC investor, President of the Renewable Energy Business Network (REBN), in the Cleantech Investing blog
