Low Cost Flywheel Energy Storage - THE MIDNIGHT SUN



Elevator Pitch

ENERGIESTRO recently invented a flywheel made of a new low cost material, that will enable to reduce the cost of storage by one order if magnitude (patent pending).

Targeted APPLICATIONS are:
– storage and smoothing of intermittent renewable energies;
– power supply of remote sites: telecommunications antennas, housing…
– rural electrification in developing countries.

The ENERGIESTRO flywheel is the ideal storage for large solar power plants in desert areas.

Product

The ENERGIESTRO flywheel stores energy like a stationary battery, but with the benefit of unlimited life. Practically a flywheel will operate more than 20 years and one million cycles, whereas a battery lasts a few years and thousands cycles. The bottom line is: the cost of energy storage with an ENERGIESTRO flywheel is much lower than with a battery.



ENERGIESTRO plans to produce a range of flywheels with storage capacity from 5 to 50 kWh.



Why we are ecofriendly

By dramatically reducing the cost of storage, ENERGIESTRO will enable a massive increase of intermittent renewable energies in replacement of fossil energies.
