Penn State and Khosla backing Recapping, could challenge EEStor for vaporcaps
The money is supposed to be used for research and development work on a 3D nanocomposite structure ultra-capacitor. Recapping is affiliated with Pennsylvania State University but has never publicly announced or demonstrated its technology. The project is aiming at performance of 400 Wh/kg and a target cost of around $250/kWh. If that can be achieved, a 53 kWh storage device similar to the Tesla Roadster would weigh only 292 pounds, less than one-third of the Tesla's 990 pounds.
