    Graphene Aerogels Promise Enhanced Energy Storage Performance

    Lawrence Livermore researchers have turned to graphene aerogel to develop an enhanced electrical energy storage solution that eventually could be used to smooth out power fluctuations in the energy grid by boosting the performance of commercial supercapacitors. The team's graphene aerogel-based supercapacitor electrodes are suitable for the electric vehicle applications because they feature high surface area, good electrical conductivity, chemical inertness and long-term cycling stability.
