Driving Nanotech Energy’s expansion is the company’s graphene-based nanotechnology. Nanotech’s graphene technology holds several advantages over traditional battery designs, including higher capacity and faster recharging capability, according to Kavanaugh.
“We’ve already developed groundbreaking energy storage using technology that has the high capacity of a battery and the power performance of supercapacitors in a single solution,” Kavanaugh said.
One advantage of Nanotech’s technology is sturdiness and safety, Kavanaugh added. Unlike typical batteries, you can puncture Nanotech’s graphene batteries with a nail and it won’t catch fire or explode, according to Kavanaugh. The battery will also continue to work, he added.
