“Progress in the development of Superdielectrics novel hydrophilic polymer electrolyte has continued in the past year with significant improvements in both the maximum operating voltage and the areal capacitance achieved in the laboratory.

These developments if combined into a single cell make it reasonable to project the achievement of energy densities in the range 40-60 Wh kg-1 in the near future with high probability

“The research data now available does not indicate any theoretical reason why higher energy densities should not be achievable given appropriate levels of research effort; indeed the capability of the technology appears to be open ended.”
