HOW WE’RE DOING IT

SUPERCAPACITORS TURBO-CHARGED

More than energy storage, Carbon-Ion offers energy management. Adding more renewables to the grid causes significant peaks and valleys to the demand curve. Adding fast-reacting, high-power energy storage manages the curve.

THE CARBON-ION STORY

THE NEW CATEGORY MEET CARBON-ION

Carbon-Ion was founded to further develop and bring to market the groundbreaking technology originally developed by ZapGo Ltd. With over 100 patents filed (of which more than two dozen are granted), Carbon-Ion Energy and its subsidiary Oxcion Ltd. are advancing the research and development of next-generation power storage and delivery to address the needs of a rapidly electrifying world and to help fulfill the promise of a cleaner, more sustainable future.

SCIENCE-BACKED BUILT ON RESEARCH

Today, lithium-and cobalt-based batteries are in widespread use in our phones, laptops, cordless appliances, power tools, and electric vehicles. However, these batteries are not a perfect solution and need support. In addition, their base materials, such as cobalt, are increasingly challenging to source, and recycling these batteries is difficult. As these batteries become more widely used, there are also greater risks of fire.

We are developing a new type of high-power storage device called Carbon-Ion, or C-Ion. It is safer, faster charging, does not use rare-earth materials, and uses materials which can be recycled at the end of life.

CARBON-ION CURRENTLY HAS FILED OVER 100 PATENTS (OF WHICH MORE THAN TWO DOZEN ARE GRANTED) AND CONTINUES TO EXPAND ITS PORTFOLIO OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.

TECHNOLOGY USES

INTELLIGENT DESIGNS FOR KEY WORLD PROBLEMS

Carbon-Ion Energy is developing and bringing to market the next-generation of capacitive energy storage. C-Ion are electrostatic or capacitive energy storage devices that use improved materials and efficient design to solve three global problems:

DELIVERY OF POWER-ON-DEMAND (POWER AS A SERVICE)

DELIVERY OF POWER-ON-DEMAND (POWER AS A SERVICE)

Carbon-Ion cells have unique properties that allow them to charge and discharge extremely quickly, while still retaining meaningful energy storage, which enables delivery of fast, clean power-on-demand. These unique Carbon-Ion cells deliver a powerful boost in hybrid systems, for example enabling enhanced grid revenue stacking or even powering take-off in electric-powered aviation.

GRID MARKET - DYNAMIC CONTAINMENT

GRID MARKET - DYNAMIC CONTAINMENT

Dynamic containment is one of a new suite of frequency response services that has been rolled out by the UK national grid in 2021 and represents a good example of how the move to renewable generation offers opportunities for fast-responding energy storage.

Significant loss of grid inertia has led to more frequency deviations than before, and a range of technologies is needed to plug this gap as we move toward a grid that is fully supplied by sustainable energy generation – this will be true in every country in the world if ‘net-zero’ is adopted.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES (EV)

ELECTRIC VEHICLES (EV)

Drivers are used to filling a tank in a gasoline, petrol, or diesel vehicle in 5 minutes and then driving 500 miles or more before they must fill up again. Carbon-Ion believes that drivers will demand the same experience before switching to electric vehicles, and Carbon-Ion’s C-Ion technology could help make this possible.

Autonomous vehicles make multiple short journeys and require constant sources of energy for a 24-hour operation. A fast-charging solution here could allow for the minimization of individual charging events to give near-continuous operation.

Dr. Hugh Sutherland

Chief Technical Officer

Hugh is a highly experienced technical leader and scientist with a track record of delivering complex development programs. His broad expertise includes fundamental research into low-carbon energy devices, polymer synthesis and medical device development. He has also consulted on technology, market, and business strategies to facilitate the spin-out of low-carbon energy businesses from leading UK research institutions. In addition to his doctorate in polymer chemistry, Hugh holds an MBA from Henley Business School. At ZapGo (2016 – 2020), Hugh augmented research and development capabilities building and leading its high functioning cell development team. In his new role at Carbon-Ion Energy, Hugh will again build the technical team and, with their help, execute Carbon Ion Energy’s ambitious technology development plans.
