Self-storing Solar Power Possible with Graphene: #graphene

Sunvault Energy, a Canadian renewable energy company, says that graphene-based supercapacitors, developed by UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), have the potential to change the way that we charge portable electronic devices, from smartphones to electric vehicles. Sunvault Energy manufactures photovoltaic solar panels which, of course, generate renewable solar power. In turn, some kind of energy storage system is required for such a setup to be of any use, which is where UCLA’s graphene-based supercapacitors come in.
