Introduction

Energy storage is a key topic for research, industry and business, gaining more and more interest.

Supercapacitors (also known as ultracapacitors, electrochemical capacitors or double-layer capacitors) feature exceptional capacitance values reaching hundreds or even thousands of farads. This is several orders of magnitude higher than traditional devices.

Developments in supercapacitor technology and supporting electronics, combined with reductions in cost, have created extraordinary new opportunities for electrical and electronic systems in both research and industrial applications. The number of manufacturers grows every day as performance potential increases, costs fall and estimated business turnover rises.

This workshop provides an overview of the exciting applications and advances made possible by supercapacitor technology. It will also provide a forum to discuss and compare other energy storage solutions.

The workshop program is conceived to be more than a simple overview: this will offer a way for people in related fields to meet and share ideas.

The tagline for this edition "New roots for new plants" is a word play to stress that the roots of electrochemistry can lead to new applications and new performances. The path from the roots to the large power plants is followed in the workshop program.

Workshop speakers were selected by the Scientific Committee. Workshop participation was free with mandatory registration.
