THE HEMP ULTRACAPACITOR: Regenerative Power for a Sovereign Energy Economy
The development of hemp-based energy storage will play a vital role in facilitating the graceful transition from the
fossil fuel and mining economy to a regenerative, relocalized, resilient, and life-affirming economy with
distributed, decentralized, and democratic renewable-energy systems. Energy storage is a necessary element
for the utilization of renewable energy, but most currently available energy storage systems rely on extractive
mining operations and oppressive labor conditions. Along with the growing shift toward cleaner energy
generation, is the increasing necessity for cleaner energy storage. Just as we did not leave the Stone Age due to
a lack of rocks, it’s incumbent on us to make a just transition in our materials economy for a growing energy
economy. Energy storage is a cornerstone of the New Green Revolution. This presentation shows how a
regeneratively farmed plant, hemp, is the foundation for a new class of energy storage technology emerging in
academia and industry, and what we hope may one day power our homes and communities.
