The current and future demands for efficient storage technology in hybrid electric vehicles are higher than ever for environmental protection and the replacement of fossil fuels. Supercapacitors (SCs) have attracted much attention as energy storage devices because of their ultrafast charge-discharge rate, high power capability, low maintenance, and long cycle life. Besides, they can bridge the gap between the higher energy density offering batteries and the high power density delivering conventional capacitors. However, the limitation of energy density remains a key challenge in SCs research.  Although, considerable efforts have been made such as replacing/ incorporating the high energy electrode materials (metal oxides and conductive polymers) in commercial carbon electrode materials but with the sacrificing long term cycle capability. Considering the current scenario in the urge of SCs advancement, in our research work, we aimed to develop a cost effective and facial route for commercial scale level production of electrode materials, carbon/ carbon composites, with well tuned physical and chemical properties for favoring high energy density, without sacrificing the long term cycle and high charge-discharge capability.
