Oneonta, NY (October 7, 2013) – On September 25th, 2013, CEI personnel attended the NY-Best Technology Conference in Syracuse, NY relating to the developments in battery and energy storage technologies throughout New York State.
The conference was filled with informative presentations and lively discussions concerning the future of batteries, ultracapacitors and thermal / mechanical energy storage.
Presenting for Custom Electronics was Allen Anderson (Director of Business Development) who versed the audience on CEI’s work with ultracapacitors and relating capacitor developments. Throughout the past decade, CEI has been awarded numerous NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) grants to research and develop new technologies in the areas of capacitors and energy storage.
In 2012, Custom Electronics was awarded $250,000 to develop an electrolytic graphene capacitor to back up the electricity grid during power shortages, voltage spikes, and momentary electricity interruptions.
Also, this past April, CEI was awarded another $250,000 to develop an ultracapacitor with increased energy storage potential. The upstate New York firm is seeking to market its technology in industrial power electronic applications and in hybrid vehicles.
Going back to the Conference, another positive note is that of a student poster submitted by Binghamton University in collaboration with CEI dealing with Barium Titanate Nanofibers. The poster won third place out of the 31 submitted. Congrats team!!
Custom Electronics would like to thank NY-Best, NYSERDA and all supporting sponsors for their time and effort dedicated to not only this seminar but all R & D efforts that keep New York State at the forefront of the technology sector.
