Development and Prototype of Safe and High-Energy Electric Double-Layer Capacitors - Part 4

Supercapacitors are electrochemical energy storage devices that allow electricity to be stored for later use and play an essential role in utilizing intermit renewable energy. This collaborative project between Dr. Jian Liu’s group at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Atlas Power Generation, a Vancouver-based clean tech company, will develop a high-energy, safe, and low-cost supercapacitors technology by materials and electrolyte innovation. The interns will develop thick carbon electrode and prototype and analyze pouch-cell supercapacitors at an industry-relevant scale. Atlas Power Generation will scale up the manufacturing of the developed supercapacitor technology in BC.
