Arvio’s Super Capacitor Energy Storage System

Paul Wilson of Arvio with Super Capacitor System from Glen Morris on Vimeo.

I love how Paul tells the story of energy storage, “once upon a time we used to use old technologies like lead and lithium, now we use super capacitors”.

It really does feel like super capacitors have appeared as a viable option for hybrid applications, and with some pretty awesome specifications.

  1. Hi we had a 4.5KW installed by Metro Solar. We are very pleased with the power produced however we wonder about adding your Arvio’s Super Capacitor Energy Storage System. Could you tell us if it is compatible and give us some idea of the cost?

    We live in Cowes, Phillip Island 3922

    Cheers, Joseph

  2. My bullshit detector went through the roof. If his claims are true they are years ahead of any other cutting edge research. If its lifetime is so good, why are they only warrantying it for 10 years?

    1. Hi Lindsay, yes always good to be a sceptic. I’m still closely watching the test results but so far nothing has convinced me that these are not supercapacitors with a breakthrough technology (they’re not standard supercaps). I guess you’ll just have to watch this space. Glen

    1. Hi there, thanks for your question. Here at the Smart Energy Lab we don’t do destruction testing but “outside the box” testing. To my knowledge these are hybrid supercapacitor cells that utilise a lithium titanate cathode to enhance the voltage stability.
