1. Genesis Nanotechnology, Inc. – Silicon-Nanowire Batteries: Marine Battery Applications
A new company Tenka Energy, LLC ™ has been formed to exploit and commercialize the Next Generation Super-Capacitors and Batteries. The opportunity is based on Nanoporous-Nickel Flexible Thin-form, Scalable Super Capacitors and Si-Nanowire Battery Technologies with Exclusive IP Licensing Rights from Rice University. Discovered and developed by Dr. James M. Tour, PhD – named “One of the Fifty (50) most influential scientists in the World today” is the patent holder and early stage developer.
Key Markets and Commercial Applications
- Marine Batteries, Drone Batteries and Power Banks
- Medical Devices and Wearable Electronics
- Powered Smart Cards and Motor Cycle/ EV Batteries
- Sensors & Power Units for the ioT (Internet of Things) [Flexible Form, Energy Dense]
Highly Scalable – Energy Dense – Flexible Form – Rapid Charge
Problem 1: Current capacitors and batteries being supplied to the relevant markets lack the sustainable power density, discharge and recharge cycle and warranty life. Combined with a weight/ size challenge and the lack of a ‘flexible form factor’, existing solutions lack the ability to scale and manufacture at Low Cost, to satisfy the identified industries’ need for solutions that provide commercial viability & performance.
Solution I: (Minimal Value Product) Tenka is currently providing full, functional Super Capacitor prototypes to an initial customer in the Digital Powered Smart Card industry and has received two (2) phased Contingent Purchase Orders during the First Year Operating Cycle for 120,000 Units and 1,200,000 Units respectively.
Solution II: For Marine & Drone Batteries – Medical Devices
- High Energy Density = 2X More Time on the Water
- Simplified Manufacturing = Lower Costs
- Simple Electrode Architecture = Flex Form Factor
- Flexible Form = Dramatically Less Weight and Better Weight

5. Tenka’s ’10X’ Super Capacitor ‘First to Market Product: A Demonstration Video
Tenka Energy Makes ultra-thin, energy-dense supercapacitors that fit inside battery-operated credit cards and wearable electronic & medical devices. These devices need supercapacitors to deliver high-current pulses for fast charging and simultaneous multi-mode communication. But conventional supercapacitors can’t deliver anywhere near enough energy in the available volume for today’s power-hungry devices! Our solution is a Nanoporous Nickel-Based Supercapacitor that stores 10 times more energy per unit volume than conventional carbon-based supercapacitors.
6. Rice University’s laser-induced graphene makes simple, powerful energy storage possible
Rice University researchers who pioneered the development of laser-induced graphene have configured their discovery into flexible, solid-state microsupercapacitors that rival the best available for energy storage and delivery.
The devices developed in the lab of Rice chemist James Tour are geared toward electronics and apparel. They are the subject of a new paper in the journal Advanced Materials.
Microsupercapacitors are not batteries, but inch closer to them as the technology improves. Traditional capacitors store energy and release it quickly (as in a camera flash), unlike common lithium-ion batteries that take a long time to charge and release their energy as needed.
7. Quantum Dot Solar Cells. The Next Big Thing in Photovoltaics
In this video, Prashant V. Kamat, Radiation Laboratory and Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana, discusses his Perspective published in issue 6 of the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters.
8. The Future of Solar Energy is TINY Technology!
Technology is getting smaller and smaller — but NOTHING compares to nanotechnology. As we learn more about how materials behave on the nanoscale, we have more potential applications to use nanotechnology practically — including more efficient solar energy! Jonathan Strickland explains how nanotech could even make our solar panels more efficient, flexible, and affordable.
