Modular. Scalable. Flexible.
SCT technology utilizes the electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC) principle and harvests energy from the ionic thermoelectric effect by charging carbon nanotube supercapacitor electrodes under a temperature gradient. The energy can be stored without the temperature gradient and then delivered (or discharged) to an external circuit. The resulting device operates in a cycle with an intermittent heat source, and it is here referred to as an Ionic Thermoelectric Supercapacitor (ITESC).
Our devices harvest thermal energy by letting a heat flow charge a supercapacitor, with the ionic thermoelectric effect. The ITESC, combines the functions of a thermoelectric generator and a supercapacitor
