Ultracapacitors unscramble the power grid on Eigg
European graphene ultracapacitor pioneer Skeleton Technologies is supplying its technology for a flywheel-based power microgrid on the Scottish island of Eigg.

“We have been using the flywheel technology to support small dips in our power grid for many years already and the addition of ultra-capacitors is another improvement that will prolong the life of our batteries and increase the speed of response of the electricity grid during disturbances.

Skeleton has used the 3D graphene sponge technology in its ultracapacitors in the Skelgrid a backup system that can deliver power quickly. "Today, the Isle of Eigg boasts the first ever electricity grid running totally from renewable energy.  Many still think this is not possible, Eigg and its inhabitants are proving them wrong every single day,” said Taavi Madiberk, CEO of Skeleton.
