Electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC), also known as supercapacitors or ultracapacitors, as well as their sister product asymmetric electrochemical double layer capacitors (AEDLC), or supercabatteries, are already sufficiently mature technology with growing range of applications – in electric vehicles, mobile phones, energy harvesting, renewable energy and other products of the future. In ten years, this market is expected to over USD 11 billion.

Yet in the beginning of 2012, supercapacitors/supercabatteries are still a small fledgling niche market. The following two roadblocks can be deemed to have held back the wide scale adoption of supercapacity technology: high price and lack of industry-wide experience with supercapacitors.
