Some gas and water meters with shut off valves have quite a small battery for something with a chunky valve. They don't expect a huge number of valve operations over 10 years, and use a supercap to slowly store up enough energy from the battery for a single shot of valve operation, avoiding excessive short term loads on the small battery.
