Nanocarbons are an important part of capacitive energy storage in Supercapacitors. This presentation delves into how different material properties influence final device performance, giving insight into important metrics for designing carbon materials for energy storage. The presentation will compare different carbons and their properties as well as give insight into Skeleton Technologies’ “Curved Graphene” technology and its role in Supercapacitor energy storage.

Dr. Sebastian Pohlmann received a Diploma in Chemistry in 2012 and a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Münster in 2014. In early 2016, he started working for the Skeleton Technologies GmbH, leading its Cell Development team between 2018 and 2020. From 2020 he enabled Skeleton to win research and innovation grants worth over 50M EUR in his position of VP of Innovation.

Today he leads Skeleton’s commercial activities in the automotive field and heads the business development for its next generation Ultracapacitors. He has authored and co-authored over 10 publications and patents in the field of Supercapacitors. Skeleton Technologies develops energy storage systems toward a cleaner and electrified future using its patented Curved Graphene technology. It currently operates the largest European supercapacitor factory (in Dresden, Germany) with another factory opening in 2024 (near Leipzig, Germany) poised to be the largest supercapacitor factory in the world.
