Ioxus Meets Worldwide Needs for Ultracapacitors and Industry Information

Interest in ultracapacitors is expanding at a rapid pace as applications in LED and automotive sectors gain market share. With all the excitement in the industry, it seems like an opportune time to launch a blog. In this space, we’ll communicate with our customers, prospects, partners and the expanding network of players in the green energy market. Today, we introduce the Smart Power blog, where we will discuss technology innovations, industry trends, instructive applications and other matters important to the market.

And that market is getting bigger, with manufacturers in China and the Asia Pacific region voicing demands for smaller, higher capacity and greater power density ultracapacitors. Particularly in the wind turbine and hybrid bus markets, engineers are choosing ultracapacitors over batteries due to higher cycle life, wider temperature range tolerance and lower total cost of ownership. For urban transit vehicles, ultracapacitors more efficiently manage stop-and-go driving, lowering the levels of toxic emissions and conserving energy during deceleration, acceleration and regenerative braking.

Opportunities for ultracaps are growing, and we look forward to seeing the applications that come next. We’ll share them here, so stay tuned.
