(Nanowerk News) Enable IPC Corporation today announced that Kevin Leonard, Chief Technology Officer of Enable's subsidiary SolRayo, will be presenting on the topic "Ultracapacitors for Off Grid Solar Energy Applications" today at 3:45 pm at the 5th Annual Wisconsin Renewable Energy Summit. The event is being held in Milwaukee at the Midwest Airlines Center.
Furthermore, Dr. Mark Daugherty, President of SolRayo, will be part of a panel discussing the topic: "Growing Wisconsin Renewable Energy Business" tomorrow, Friday, March 27th at 2:30 pm. The Summit, titled "Green Business - Unlimited Economic Opportunity," which ends tomorrow, March 27th, is featuring program themes highlighting renewable energy topics ranging from bio industry energy to wind energy.

Enable IPC's ultracapacitor technology can be used in renewable energy applications, such as the demonstration project previously announced with IMDEA Energia in Madrid, Spain. The Company's ultracapacitor technology combines nanoparticles with common carbon sheets for a low cost, easy-to-implement process that improves the performance of ultracapacitors as clean energy storage devices. The enhanced ultracapacitors are simpler, cheaper and longer lasting than conventional devices, including some batteries, but perform just as well for many applications including renewable energy.
