Estonia: Skeleton Technologies' energy storage systems to be installed on Warsaw trams

BC, Tallinn, 24.01.2020.Print version
Skeleton Technologies, a company of Estonian origin that provides ultracapacitors and energy storage systems for transportation and grid applications, has signed an agreement with Polish power system developer Medcom for the installment of energy storage systems on electric trams in Warsaw, CEO of Skeleton Technologies Taavi Madiberk said.

The energy storage devices collect kinetic energy generated during braking and redirect it to acceleration. According to Skeleton Technologies, this is a great way to save electricity. "Skeleton's energy storage devices will make Warsaw's trams one of the most energy-efficient in the world,"  Taavi Madiberk said.

According to Medcom, the use of ultracapacitors will also help protect the local electric power infrastructure because trams equipped with energy storage systems put less pressure on the grid during peak hours.

Skeleton Technologies is a global leader in graphene-based ultracapacitors and energy-storage systems, delivering high power, high energy, reliable and long-life storage solutions across the industry. Since its foundation in 2009, Skeleton Technologies has raised over 50 mln euros to support manufacturing scale-up in Germany and in Estonia and has grown its headcount to 140 people.
