…is a cry often heard associated with products and technology.

But today, we are more aware of our energy consumption and, from mobile phones to hybrid cars, bigger and faster usually means shorter running time!

Power companies frequently have a lower-rate tariff during night hours of lower demand and that’s where energy storage developments are focused.

Woking-based Allotrope Energy is currently engaged at the pre-production stage of a range of super-capacitor/lithium-carbon “batteries” using a unique combination of high surface area carbon and advanced electrolytes. Fast charging characteristics and efficiencies up to 90% will cut the costs of storing electricity and enable smoother demand curves from the grid during peak hours, reducing our overall usage and move towards zero-emission power.

Allotrope Energy is based on the Lansbury Business Estate, Knaphill, Woking.
