GODI India, manufacturer of Lithium-ion cells has announced the launch of India’s first-ever 3000F (Farad) high-power supercapacitors. These supercapacitors are being manufactured at the company’s Hyderabad facility.
GODI India’s 3000F Supercapacitors to Improve Battery Life Multifolds
GODI India stated that the integration of its 3000F supercapacitors* along with battery packs would improve the battery life multi-folds in Electric Vehicle (EV) and Renewable Energy storage system applications.
*Supercapacitors are electric storage devices which can be recharged very quickly and release a large amount of power.
Researchers of GODI India Dr. Milan Jana and Dr. Pushpendra Singh are the brains behind its 3000F supercapacitor’s design, development and demonstration. They said that these supercapacitors will offer minimal ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance), excellent energy density, shock and vibration protection and lakhs of charge-discharge cycles.
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”.
Further informing about the R&D works of the company Mr. Godi mentioned “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 wide range of applications. These capacitors are environmentally sustainable, green and clean, and highly recyclable.”
Market Demand for Supercapacitors and GODI India’s Further Plans
According to research published by ‘Precedence Research’, global supercapacitors market size was valued at US$ 5 billion in 2021 and is expected to hit US$ 25 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 23.5% from year 2022 to 2030.
India being 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 in India will grow by more than 16% CAGR in the next five years with market size of $5 billion.
GODI India is planning to commission 200KWh annual capacity of supercapacitors production facility to cater to various local requirements and export markets. GODI India will also develop custom-designed supercapacitor products as per strategic segment requirements and aim to localize 100% supply chain for supercapacitor manufacturing in the next one year.
In July 2022, GODI India signed a public-private partnership deal with CSIR-CECRI (Central Electrochemical Research Institute) to operate and maintain an advanced Lithium-ion cell manufacturing unit in Taramani, Chennai. The facility started production on 1st August 2022 and the company is planning to invest about 25,000 Crore ($3 billion) over the next five years in this facility for further expansion.
