About the book

Supercapacitors are an important topic of research and development because they are interesting both in terms of energy and environmental aspects. Standard power storage systems are supercapacitors and rechargeable batteries. Recently, more and more attention is paid to supercapacitors as a qualitatively new type of capacitor and fuel cells as sources of electricity. A large number of teams and laboratories around the world are working on the development of supercapacitors, while their ever-improving performance allows for wider use. The goal of this book is to bring readers closer to new supercapacitor technologies that are changing the present and future of electricity storage. The big challenges are to improve the parameters of supercapacitors, primarily energy density and operating voltage, but we are also working on miniaturization, optimization, energy efficiency, and environmental friendliness. The expansion of electric cars brings a new trend in the development of supercapacitors - hybridization with batteries or a complex power supply that contains a battery, supercapacitor, and power electronics for energy management. The economic aspect must also be taken into account.

The book hopes to cover the following topics: new achievements in the field of electrode and inter-electrode materials, new models and test methods, new constructions and applications, and the environmental aspect.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
