Increasing Energy Efficiency for Electrified Transportation

Zero-Emission E-Mobility Solutions Enable a Sustainable Tomorrow

The transition to electric vehicles is essential for achieving a carbon-neutral future, significantly boosting energy efficiency while lowering carbon footprints. 

Our Hybrid SuperCapacitors (HSCs) bring transformative synergy to battery electric vehicles (BEVs) by optimizing battery use, extending range, and enabling downsized batteries. 

HSCs also excel when used in trams, rail systems, substations, automated transport vehicles (ATVs), material handling operations by efficiently capturing and storing energy for delivery during periods of peak demand.

HSCs provide immediate power and efficiently capture energy

Our HSCs provide rapid bursts of energy when needed, complementing the performance of lithium-ion batteries. 

While lithium-ion batteries are suitable for storing and delivering sustained energy over longer periods, our HSCs provide immediate power and efficiently capture energy during regenerative braking.

Musashi’s HSCs cells and modules capture and store energy generated during regenerative braking, which occurs when a vehicle slows down or decelerates. Instead of dissipating and wasting this energy as heat, it is stored in the HSCs. When the vehicle accelerates, this stored energy is rapidly discharged to provide a burst of power, reducing strain on the batteries and improving overall efficiency.

Due to the inherent high-power density of our Hybrid SuperCapacitors, they easily handle short-term power demands, reducing the load on the main lithium-ion battery bank. This can extend the lifespan of the batteries and vastly improve their efficiency.

Our HSCs are also ideal for delivering immediate power assist during peak demands, such as sudden acceleration or climbing steep hills. The HSC’s high power density allows them to transfer energy quickly, enhancing the vehicle’s performance and responsiveness.

When integrated into fast-charging systems, Musashi’s HSCs quickly accumulate energy from the grid and release it rapidly to the EV battery, significantly reducing charging times and minimizing strain on the power grid. In addition, our HSCs can handle one million-plus charge-discharge cycles without significant degradation, making them ideal for the frequent charging characteristics of fast charging stations.

Incorporating our HSCs in fast charging systems can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by enabling faster charging and encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles.


Musashi’s Hybrid SuperCapacitors’ (HSCs) exceptional attributes – high power output, rapid recharging, and extended cycle life – make them exceptionally well-suited for electrified transportation applications such as Wayside energy storage for rail and Catenary-free tram systems.
For Wayside energy storage, our high power density systems provide power stabilization at railway departures and stops. Catenary-free trams (no overhead lines or masts) can operate solely on our energy storage devices, providing fast charging when stopping at stations.

In specific hybrid electric setups, where battery-based energy storage and power delivery are central, the constrained power capabilities of batteries can result in poor performance. Issues such as limited battery longevity, oversized battery banks, and safety concerns often plague engineers grappling with battery-centric electric systems.

By introducing our HSCs into hybrid electric configurations, batteries can be entirely eliminated. Alternatively, our energy storage devices can be integrated alongside batteries in parallel within a hybrid electric framework, offering significant advantages like downsized batteries, prolonged battery life, lower capital costs, reduced energy usage, and enhanced application performance.

Electric rail systems, such as trains and trams, often use regenerative braking to recover and store energy during deceleration. Our advanced HSCs can capture and store this energy quickly and efficiently. When a train accelerates, the stored energy is swiftly discharged to assist in propulsion, reducing energy consumption and increasing overall efficiency.

Energy storage systems like our HSCs can act as voltage stabilizers to manage fluctuations in power demand. During peak power requirements, our HSCs quickly discharge energy to provide an immediate power boost, helping to maintain stable voltage levels and prevent voltage drops that could impact the operation of onboard systems.

Engineers and operators can depend on our Hybrid SuperCapacitors for emergency backup power for critical systems, such as lighting, communications, and control systems. In the event of a power interruption, the HSCs provide instant energy to help ensure safe operation of the train and passenger comfort.

Material Handling

Musashi’s Hybrid SuperCapacitors (HSCs) bring prime benefits to cranes, forklifts, and automated transport vehicles (ATVs), vastly enhancing their performance and efficiency.

Our energy storage devices excel in rapidly transferring energy, enabling quick acceleration and deceleration, crucial for vehicles that frequently start and stop. 

Their regenerative capabilities capture and reuse energy during braking, enhancing energy efficiency and reducing wear on braking systems.

Our HSC’s high power density is pivotal for lifting heavy loads efficiently, while their exceptional 15-year cycle life reduces maintenance requirements and downtime.

Compatibility with hybrid energy solutions allows for tailored energy management strategies, elevating productivity and sustainability for cranes, forklifts, ATVs and other material-handling applications.

Because our HSCs have a much higher cycle life compared to traditional batteries, they can endure a larger number of charge and discharge cycles without significant degradation in performance, making them suitable for repetitive lifting operations.

Hybrid SuperCapacitors can be charged rapidly, reducing downtime and increasing vehicle availability.

Due to their high power density, the HSCs stabilize the power supply, reducing voltage sags during high-power demands.

For standby generator applications, frequent start-stop cycles can lead to wear and tear on the generator’s components, potentially reducing its lifespan and reliability. Because our HSCs can deal with rapid charge and discharge cycles, the stress on the generator is reduced. 

Our highly durable HSCs supply the initial surge of power required during start-up, allowing the generator to operate more efficiently over its operational life.

The longer cycle life means decreased wear on mechanical components, leading to lower maintenance expenses.

The HSC’s wide operating temperature range maintains efficiency even in cold climates, ensuring reliability year-round.
