Godi India, the first Indian company to get BIS certification to sell lithium-ion cells made with home-grown technology, has now achieved another milestone by manufacturing India’s first ever 3000F high power supercapacitors at its Hyderabad facility. 

The company says integration of Godi India’s supercapacitors along with battery packs would improve the battery life multi-fold in electric vehicle (EV) and renewable Energy Storage System (ESS) applications.

Godi India has developed a range of supercapacitor products that offer higher power delivery, minimal ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance), excellent energy density, better shock and vibration protection, and lakhs of charge-discharge cycles. Supercapacitors are the devices used in power-smoothening, pitch-control, start-stop, regenerative-braking, smart-grid, active heave compensation, and specialty UPS applications.

Mahesh Godi, founder and CEO of Godi India said, “Godi India is producing cost-effective and plant-based carbon-carbon supercapacitors using water-based electrode processing. We have a variety of supercapacitor products ranging up to 3000F. At present, we are in the process of developing high-voltage lithium-ion capacitors, as well. We are also working on hybrid capacitors with higher energy densities to replace lead-acid batteries in wide range of the applications. These capacitors are environmentally sustainable, green and clean, and highly recyclable.”

Sharing details on the future plan, Mahesh Godi said, “Godi India is planning to commission a 200 kWh of supercapacitors production facility to cater to various local requirements and export markets. GODI India is also keen to develop custom-designed supercapacitor products as per strategic segment requirements and aiming to localise 100% supply chain of the supercapacitors manufacturing in the next year.”

The estimated global market size of supercapacitors is US$ 25 billion by the year 2030. Considering India is the fourth largest automotive maker and third largest energy consumer in the world and growing rapidly towards electric vehicles and renewables, it is estimated that the supercapacitor market will grow by more than 16% CAGR in the next five years with a market size of US$ 5 billion.
