TechConnect Innovation Program

Energy Transmission and Energy Storage in a Single Cable

UCF Office of Research & Commercialization, FL, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

A method to integrate electrical conduction and energy storage into current carrying cables using nanotechnology. These cables can function both as a current conductor and as an electrical energy storage device. This combined energy transmission and storage technology is applicable to any wired electrical system that benefits from power storage.

Primary Application Area: Energy & Efficiency

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: 1. Significant reduction in materials used by combining energy transmission and storage in the same cable
2. Lower cost
3. Critical in the applications where space and weight is of prime importance
