About us

In 2010, FastCAP began work under a multimillion-dollar grant from the DOE ARPA-E to develop its novel ultracapacitor technology for electrified drivetrain vehicles. The company was honored to be awarded another grant from the DOE Geothermal Technologies Program in 2011 to develop a cutting-edge power system for geothermal energy exploration.

After only two years of development under its ARPA-E program, FastCAP had broken four performance records related to the power and energy density of its cells. FastCAP has gone on to achieve an additional world record related to its work in geothermal energy system development. These breakthrough performance characteristics have laid the foundation for FastCAP's unique product solutions across the energy spectrum, from vehicles to energy exploration and consumer electronics.

FastCAP developed, through a NASA SBIR Program, the world’s first ultracapacitor capable of reliable operation in two different extreme temperature ranges for aerospace explorations: -110°C to 80°C and -5°C to 300°C.  Read more about it here.

In 2018, FastCAP Systems developed Nanoramic, a division which specializes in material solutions based on nano-carbons. Nano-carbons have exceptional electrical, thermal and mechanical properties at the nano-scale level. Nanoramic synthesizes and incorporates nano-carbons in various materials and transfers these properties at the macroscale level, addressing the needs of several applications.

Our team reflects the Culture of Innovation at the cutting edge of Advanced Materials and Energy Storage
