Abstract:
Significant quantities of energy are available for capture and reuse provided suitable storage media is available. Electrochemical capacitor technology, fast becoming the preferred media due to its rapid and efficient capture rate plus high cycle life, will be featured and compared with alternate storage.

John R. Miller is President of JME, Inc., a company he started in 1989 to serve the electrochemical capacitor (EC) industry providing materials evaluations, capacitor design, component testing, reliability assessment, and system engineering services. Dr. Miller has reported on critical EC technology issues and prepared test methods for the DOE. He frequently is invited to teach tutorials on EC technology. Dr. Miller previously held positions with Standard Oil of Ohio (SOHIO), the University of Rochester, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. He earned BS and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has 50+ publications and 10 US patents.
