A scalable and sustainable grid-scale energy storage system utilising 3rd generation flywheel technology for effective integration of renewable energy.

Project description

New tools to meet energy transition needs

Growth does not need to cause environmental pollution. There is a way to store energy that can meet the needs of the population, and provides a zero-waste solution. The EU-funded Teraloop EES project has the solution: a grid-scale energy storage system that can sustainably service niche markets difficult to address for current technologies. Drawing upon proven technologies (flywheel energy storage, magnetic levitation and brushless motors), this highly scalable, kinetic energy storage system can innovatively configure for grid-scaled storage with minimal visual and environmental footprint. For instance, its rotor is hubless and made of lightweight, strong and recyclable carbon fibre composites, and it allows for five times higher energy storage capacity.
