New Energy Pioneers: Skeleton Technologies

Europe’s leading manufacturer of ultracapacitors.


Founded: 2009

CEO: Taavi Madiberk

HQ: Estonia


What does Skeleton Technologies do?

Skeleton Technologies develops and manufactures ultracapacitor-based modules and systems for automotive, transportation, and grid storage applications. Skeleton also performs fundamental materials research, which is then incorporated into its ultracapacitator designs.

How are they disrupting their industry?

Skeleton Technologies’ innovative use of curved graphene leads to an ultracapacitator with double the energy density and four times the power density of competing products.

Ultracapacitators can provide the short bursts of high power that vehicles, industrial and grid applications require. BNEF forecasts that this market will reach approximately 750GWh of demand by 2030.
