Emerging industries

Countless markets are charged for a graphene revolution – with many eager to benefit from our cutting edge research and products.

Portable
electronics

Electronic devices require huge batteries to function. This has increased the demand for compact, lightweight and energy dense lithium ion batteries. Capacity determinates how long the battery will last on a single charge, which is one of the main features of today’s electronic devices. Nanotech Energy has gone a long way towards creating the next generation of lithiumion battery.

The problem

While portable electronic devices have experienced a lot of progress over the past few years in terms of size and functionality, batteries are still lagging behind.

Our solution

With ultrahigh energy density, our proprietary GPower-345 batteries promise to increase the operation time of portable electronic devices by 25% while extending the battery lifetime as well.

Our GPower-222 and GPower-345 batteries promise electric cars with more than 400 miles, which when demonstrated will be the longest range in the world.

Electric vehicles

To extract graphene from graphite, Nanotech Energy uses simple chemical compounds that insert oxygen atoms between the layers of graphene, converting it to graphite oxide which falls apart in water forming individual graphene oxide sheets. These sheets can be converted back to graphene using proprietary chemical, hydrothermal and photothermal methods.

Our GPower-222 and GPower-345 batteries promise electric cars with more than 400 miles, which when demonstrated will be the longest range in the world.

The problem

In 2008, Obama administration called for a million car running on the roads by 2015, yet, as of today we are only 40% towards this target. Low electricity rate, strong charging infrastructure and the development of high capacity battery packs are necessary for the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.

Our solution

The GPower-222 and GPower-345 promise electric cars with more than 400 miles, which when demonstrated will be the longest range in the world. Nanotech Energy offers graphene oxide and graphene products in different formulations that are designed to be customized for every kind of use. Because of this, Nanotech Energy’s graphene products have the potential to revolutionize graphene industry with applications in batteries, transparent conducting electrodes, functional inks, flexible displays, antistatic coatings, RFID antennas to name but a few.

Solar industry

In 2015, solar industry proved once again to be the fastest growing energy source in the United States. Reports indicate that 7.2 GW of solar panels was installed in 2015, the largest annual total ever and 16% above 2014. And 2016 is set to break all the previous records and is projected to exceed 10 GW added on annual basis for the first time ever and the number of homeowners with solar installed to exceed the 1 million mark.

The problem

While standalone solar systems produce electricity with high efficiency, only a fraction of this energy can be used. Without a plausible way to capture the unused energy, you are either throwing it away or selling it back to the grid.

Our solution

A Nanotech Energy solar battery allows you to capture and store the excess energy, opening up the possibility of going off-the-grid. This energy can be released for use at night or during times of heavy consumption. The development of high-power battery packs can accelerate the growth of green technology.

Electric grid

Installing banks of energy storage batteries into electricity grids is an established method for improving the reliability and overall use of the entire power system. Batteries can absorb electric energy whenever there is too much generation and inject it back to the grid when more electricity is required. This means less chance of the grid becoming overloaded and disrupting the power supply. It also makes the power supply smoother and more predictable. Nanotech Energy is developing new battery packs for grid energy storage. The battery packs are projected to provide the lowest price/kWh/cycle, which may have a significant impact on the economics of grid scale energy storage.
