A free white paper based on research firm NanoMarkets' upcoming report on capacitors has been made available.
NanoMarkets' report, entitled Batteries and Ultra-Capacitors for the Smart Power Grid: Market Opportunities 2009-2016, will be released in mid-July.
According to the report, chemical batteries, ultra-capacitors and the materials from which they are constructed represent an exciting business opportunity that is likely to grow as green energy technology takes off.
"While other technologies such as hydro and compressed air storage will certainly be integral parts to the overall storage solution, batteries and ultra-capacitor storage represent a large attractive near term materials growth sector," the report stated.
A detailed eight-year forecast for the materials used in smart grid storage applications, as well as a discussion of key firms active in the market, is also included.
Nanomarkets recently announced the release of an industry analysis of the market for printed photovoltaics from 2009 until 2016.
