Imagine an electric battery that recharges in 10 seconds whenever you wish: that’s the NAWATechnologies world.
Launched in 2013, NAWATechnologies’ creation depended to a large part on support from CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives) and then on the InnoEnergy Highway® programme. Its first Ultra-Fast Carbon Battery is currently in the prototyping and testing phase.
Although technologically complex, the project is easy to explain. Imagine bicycle or car batteries that use a revolutionary carbon compound structured at the nanometric scale produced on aluminium foil that’s metres long. Cut off the length you want, roll it up and you’re ready to go! The battery then charges almost instantaneously whenever you need it. That’s thinking outside the box as all battery makers are locked by autonomy. Thanks to a second fundraising campaign, these batteries’ capacity is being optimised and the company is moving to the industrial and commercial phases.
