p. 2 2 Capacitive Storage Science Supercapacitors bridge between batteries and conventional capacitors Supercapacitors are able to attain greater energy densities while still maintaining the high power density of conventional capacitors. Supercapacitors provide versatile solutions to a variety of emerging energy applications including harvesting and regenerating energy in transportation, industrial machinery, and storage of wind, light and vibrational energy. This is enabled by their sub-second response time. *Halper, M.S., & Ellenbogen, J.C., MITRE Nanosystems Group, March 2006
