MIT's new carbon-free supercapacitor could revolutionize the way we store power

Finding ways to store clean energy is one of the largest challenges green entrepreneurs and innovators face today. A team led by MIT researchers developed a new supercapacitor that could revolutionize the way electric vehicles, for example, store power. The MIT supercapacitor, made without conducive carbon, even has the potential to "deliver more power." Past supercapacitors were all made with carbon, which required "high temperatures and harsh chemicals to produce," according to MIT News.
