In today’s society, we stand before a change in energy scarcity. As our civilization grows, many countries in thedeveloping world seek to have the standard of living that has been exclusive to a few nations, so their arises a need in thedevelopment of technology that is compatible enough with the resources provided by nature in order to have sustainabledevelopment to all class of the society. In order to overcomethe prevailing challenges of huge energy crises in near future, there is an urgent need for the development of electrical vehiclesor hybrid electrical vehicles with low CO2 emissions using renewable energy sources. In view of the above, electrochemicalcapacitors can fulfil the requirements to some extent.Preparation of nano composite polymer gel electrolyte is the best optional product to overcome these problems. When fillers are added or dispersed to the polymer gel electrolyte, amorphous or porous nature of electrolyte increases which enhances the liquid absorbing quality of polymer and helps in removing the drawbacks of polymer gel electrolytes such as leakage, poor mechanical and thermal stability etc. In this work dispersion of SiO2 nano filler is done in the [PVdF (HFP)-PC-Mg (ClO4)2] for the synthesis of nano composite PGE [PVdF (HFP)-PC-MgClO4- SiO2]. Optimization and characterization was carried out by using various techniques.
