GODI India, the first Indian company to get BIS certification to sell lithium-ion cells made with homegrown technology, has now achieved another milestone by manufacturing India’s first ever 3000F high-power supercapacitors at their Hyderabad facility. Integration of GODI India’s supercapacitors along with battery packs would improve the battery life multi-folds in Electric Vehicle (EV) and Renewable Energy Storage System (ESS) applications. Dr Milan Jana and Dr Pushpendra Singh are the brains behind the GODI India supercapacitor’s design, development and demonstration.
GODI India has developed a range of supercapacitor products that offer higher power delivery, minimal ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance), excellent energy density, better shock and vibration protection, and lakhs of charge-discharge cycles. Supercapacitors are the devices used in power-smoothening, pitch-control, start-stop, regenerative-braking, smart-grid, active heave compensation, and speciality UPS applications. Godi India’s supercapacitors are an example of waste-to-wealth concepts.
Commenting on this achievement, Mr Mahesh Godi, Founder and CEO of GODI India said, “GODI India is producing cost-effective and plant-based Carbon-Carbon supercapacitors using water-based electrode processing. We have a variety of supercapacitor products ranging up to 3000F. At present, we are in the process of developing high-voltage lithium-ion capacitors, as well. We are also working on hybrid capacitors with higher energy densities to replace Lead-Acid batteries in a wide range of applications. These capacitors are environmentally sustainable, green and clean, and highly recyclable.”
The estimated global market size of supercapacitors is USD 25 billion by the year 2030. Considering India is the fourth largest automotive maker and third largest energy consumer in the world and growing rapidly towards electric vehicles and renewables, it is estimated that the supercapacitor market will grow by more than 16% CAGR in the next five years with market size of USD 5 billion.
Sharing more details on the future plan, Mr Mahesh said, “GODI India is planning to commission 200 kWh of the supercapacitors production facility to cater to various local requirements and export markets. GODI India is also keen to develop custom-designed supercapacitor products as per strategic segment requirements and aiming to localize 100% supply chain of the supercapacitors manufacturing in the next one year.”
