Skeleton Technologies is Europe’s leading manufacturer of ultracapacitors, delivering high power, high energy, reliable and long-life storage solutions across industry. Through the use of patented nanoporous carbide-derived carbon, or ‘curved graphene’, we have achieved global breakthroughs in ultracapacitor performance. Our ultracapacitors deliver twice the energy density and five times the power density offered by other manufacturers.
In 2014, the company opened a 1,000 m2 pilot plant and launched its SkelCap Series ultracapacitors which have gained considerable traction in the motorsport, automotive and aerospace sectors, among others. In June 2015, it secured €9.8 million capital from institutional investors for further expansion. The current customer base includes global engineering companies, the European Space Agency and several Tier 1 automotive manufacturers.
The company employs 49 people, including nine PhDs, and has two subsidiaries: Skeleton Technologies GmbH located in Bautzen, Germany, which deals with manufacturing and sales; and Skeleton Technologies OÜ, located near Tallinn, Estonia, which handles R&D and pilot production.
