As technology progresses, machines are getting smaller yet more efficient, while requiring more dynamic and potent power resources to reach peak performance. For overall better performance and safety, lithium-ion capacitors have proven themselves an ideal option. As the supplier of the most premium-quality lithium-ion capacitors, JM Energy specialises in innovating customised lithium-ion capacitor solutions for various industries.

When our clients use our lithium-ion capacitors, they have the potential to reduce their oil usage or carbon footprint, preserving our beautiful earth
Mikio Yamachika, president

JM Energy pioneered the renowned lithium-ion capacitor (LIC) a year after it was founded as a subsidiary of JSR in 2007. Leveraged by the global network and support of JSR, JM Energy has perfected its electrode coating system and increased its cell creation capacity to 3 million cells a year, expanding its manufacturing base in Hokuto city, Yamanashi – a prefecture known for its environmental conservation involvement. Abiding by stringent, environmentally sound manufacturing systems and quality management, JM Energy is certified ISO 14001 and ISO 9001-compliant.

“It is for the environment,” says JM Energy president Mikio Yamachika. “When our clients use our lithium-ion capacitors, they have the potential to reduce their oil usage or carbon footprint, preserving our beautiful earth.”

Under the brand Ultimo, JM Energy’s lithium-ion capacitors come in laminated and prismatic cells, surpassing other energy storage devices such as the lithium-ion battery and the electric double-layer capacitor, with longer cycle life, quick charge rates, lower self-discharge, higher energy and power densities, and lower chances for thermal runaway reactions.

Because the lithium-ion capacitor offers these superior characteristics, its uses are limitless; from powering heavy machinery and generating energy for transportation systems, to energy storage for emergency medical purposes.

Geared towards creating more accessible and customised LIC solutions, JM Energy is dedicating its research and development to manufacturing more affordable cells for wider industrial consumption. It welcomes research collaborations and partnerships with module developers from China, Europe, India, South Asia and the United States.
