2 Capacitors in parallel means less ESR?

    Hey. I have a question... If i have 2 1000μf 10V capacitors in parallel will the ESR drop like a normal resistor in parallel? or will it stay the same? or will it add more ESR?. The reason i'm asking this is because my teacher gave the entire class a group project, The teacher said "This project is a great test of your knowledge from this year... You'll need to make a circuit which is drawing 100ma or less at the input and outputs at least 1A for at least 1μs or more." At first we thought to make a simple battery but we failed so i asked "Why won't we just use capacitors? They can output more then the input for less then a second and they are very cheap!" But we realized that the ESR is very high. This is why i'm asking this question.

    What do capacitors usually do when placed in circuit-type arrangements in arrays of two or more?
