Swedes created the "Energy Charter"

The new material stored energy and can be bent. Swedish researchers from Linköping University have created a material with exceptional ability to store electricity. Scientists call its development "Energy Charter". The material consists of cellulose nanofibers, and a conductive polymer. One such piece of paper with a diameter of 15 cm and a thickness not less than 1 mm has a capacity of 1 Farad - comparable to the capacity of yonistorite available today on the market.
Sheet withstand hundreds of cycles of charging and recharging in seconds. The new material shows a record for organic electronics parameter values, incl. capacity and current. One of the most promising areas for application of such material are power systems using renewable sources - such as wind and solar. These systems are characterized by variations in input energy, so the availability of its storage capacity allows a constant flow regardless of weather conditions, time and season. Advantages of the "Energy Charter" are also the possibility to prepare a list of arbitrary thickness and the fact that the sheet can be bent as plain paper. The challenge for scientists now is to develop a process for mass production of the new material.
