GODI India produces 3000F high-power supercapacitors for EV, ESS applications – ET Auto
The estimated global market size of supercapacitors is USD 25 billion by 2030.
Chennai: GODI India, the first Indian company to get BIS certification to sell lithium-ion cells made with home grown technology, has manufactured India’s first 3000F high-power supercapacitors at its Hyderabad facility.
The supercapacitors when integrated with battery packs would improve the battery life multi-folds in electric vehicle (EV) and Renewable Energy Storage System (ESS) applications, the company said in a media release.
The estimated global market size of supercapacitors is USD 25 billion by 2030. Considering India is the fourth largest automotive maker and third largest energy consumer in the world and growing rapidly towards electric vehicles and renewables, it is estimated that the supercapacitor market will grow by more than 16% CAGR in the next five years with a market size of USD 5 billion, the company release said.
“GODI India is planning to commission 200 kWh of supercapacitors production facility to cater to various local requirements and export markets. It is also keen to develop custom-designed supercapacitor products as per strategic segment requirements and aiming to localize 100% supply chain of the supercapacitors manufacturing in the next one year,” Mahesh Godi, founder and CEO of GODI India, said.
GODI India has developed a range of supercapacitor products that offer higher power delivery, minimal ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance), excellent energy density, better shock and vibration protection, and lakhs of charge-discharge cycles. Supercapacitors are the devices used in power-smoothening, pitch-control, start-stop, regenerative-braking, smart-grid, active heave compensation, and specialty UPS applications. These capacitors were designed, developed and demonstrated by Milan Jana and Pushpendra Singh of GODI India, the release said.
“GODI India is producing cost-effective and plant-based Carbon-Carbon supercapacitors using water-based electrode processing. We have a variety of supercapacitor products ranging up to 3000F. At present, we are in the process of developing high-voltage lithium-ion capacitors, as well. We are also working on hybrid capacitors with higher energy densities to replace lead-acid batteries in a wide range of applications. These capacitors, follow the waste to wealth concepts and are environmentally sustainable, green and clean, and highly recyclable,” Godi said.
The reduction could be seen as a worrisome sign that the chip shortage will continue to stymie production at the world’s largest automaker by sales in the second half of the financial year to end March.
Conflicts have stemmed in part from different views among carmakers, suppliers and tech firms over who should shoulder the cost of licensing.
