Energy Storage

Graphene Supercapacitors for Energy Storage Applications

The world’s first and only producer of graphene electrode materials for commercial supercapacitor applications, delivering smaller, more powerful energy storage solutions and longer life-spans for batteries.

Supercapacitors are an important element in most energy systems

The market for supercapacitors reached USD 5.02 billion in 2021, and is forecast to grow to USD 22.50 billion by 2028.

Ionic Supercapacitors – Unparalleled Energy Density

While those in the supercapacitor industry acknowledge that graphene materials are the future of advanced supercapacitor technology… Ionic is the first to develop graphene-based supercapacitors with performance specifications that will disrupt global supercapacitor markets with smaller, more powerful energy storage solutions and deliver longer life spans for batteries.

Supported and Validated

Technology developed over the past 8 years with Monash University, a world leader in the development of graphene materials for advanced technology applications.

Supported by 3 successive tranches of Australian government funding.

Technology further validated through Ionic’s joint venture with advanced supercapacitor company Cap-XX (LON:CPX) to bring Ionic’s graphene electrodes to supercapacitor markets.
