New super capacitor can store energy while bearing loads

05/29/2014 | Sourceable

A super capacitor with enough structural integrity to serve as a car chassis or the load-bearing wall of a building has been developed by researchers at Vanderbilt University. Nanoscale pores are the key to its energy storage capacity and structural strength, according to this article. The super capacitor consists of a thin grey wafer of silicon electrodes.
