Ioxus will be in Atlanta, GA from June 3 to 6 exhibiting at AWEA WINDPOWER, a show that attracts thousands of industry professionals, experts, leaders, decision makers, researchers and academics representing all sectors of the wind energy industry from across the U.S. and around the globe to network and learn about the latest wind technologies.

Attendees can stop by booth #4517 to visit Ioxus and learn how recent advances in energy storage options, such as ultracapacitors, improve wind turbines. Ioxus carries the broadest range of ultracapacitor products available on the market today, and is one of the only companies to offer products unburdened by unnecessary licensing fees.

With more than 14,000 wind turbine installations throughout the world, the demand for ultracapacitor technology in electrical-based systems is increasing. Unlike batteries, ultracapacitors are a dependable energy storage option for manufacturers who want to ensure that their wind turbines will operate reliably in any environment. While batteries can cause power failure in turbines under extreme weather conditions, ultracapacitors allow wind turbines to function properly regardless. With ultracapacitors, electrical-based pitch control systems can perform in moments of high peak power and provide the frequent, brief boosts that are necessary for rapid motor blade adjustments and creating electricity.

With a shorter lifespan than ultracapacitors, new batteries are frequently needed in wind turbines, causing manufacturers to spend unnecessary amounts of time and money on replacements. With ultracapacitors, manufacturers have an efficient, cost-effective and maintenance-free energy storage solution.

  • uSTART® Lead-Free Replacement for Truck Batteries

    ONEONTA, N.Y.Jan. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ioxus uSTART® has received two fleet industry awards for sustainability by eliminating lead-acid batteries with its ultracapacitor-based, drop-in battery replacement.

    "With uSTART, fleets not only realize the benefits of improved starting reliability, there are equally important and real sustainability improvements from lead waste reduction," said Chad Hall, executive vice president and co-founder of Ioxus. "By replacing one of the batteries on a vehicle with a uSTART module, up to 15 fewer batteries are needed over the lifetime of the vehicle. This translates into 1,000 pounds of lead that will never need to be disposed of or allowed to affect groundwater."

    EU legislation on batteries is embodied in the European Battery Directive.  Its objective is to contribute to the preservation and improvement of environmental quality by minimizing the negative impact of batteries and battery waste.  As these preservation efforts expand, sustainable technologies develop to manage and mitigate these risks.

    Replacing a lead-acid battery with uSTART in a typical commercial vehicle creates measurable environmental benefits:
