THE HIGHER POWER LONGER LIFE OF FLYWHEELS, UPGRADED FOR GRID AND INDUSTRY BY INDUSTRIAL POWER RESPONSE.

Industrial Power Response use a flywheel as the core energy storage  - flywheels store kinetic energy in a rotating mass converting to electricity with a motor and drive.  Flywheels are an established category of energy storage typically offering high power densities, ultra-long life and suited to rapid charging/discharging under heavy loads.


Industrial Power Response’s technology was originated to deliver the next generation of flywheel technology – bringing the recognised performance benefits of flywheels, with added performance advantages and commercial advantages demanded by industrial electrification and grid modernisation.

LOWER TOTAL COST

  • Lower capital cost than batteries per kW - flywheels have higher power density

  • Lower replacement costs than rival technologies - flywheels have 20-year plus life in the most demanding duty cycles (1000+ cycles per day)

  • Lower ancillaries cost - flywheels required less cooling, less footprint and aftercare maintenance associated with chemical storage.

HIGHER PERFORMANCE

  • High power delivered quickly - flywheels can deliver 100s kW almost instantly, rival technologies have to be over-sized and over-priced to do what a flywheel is designed for.

  • True heavy duty cycles - flywheels can deliver 1000+ cycles per day whereas rival technologies are over-sized (and price) to perform (e.g. 6000 cycles lifespan for some lithium-ion).

  • Absolute certainty on availability - unlike a battery where power / energy available is an estimate, flywheels can report absolute power and energy availability plus can be designed for low MTBF and n+1 redundancy.

REDUCED ENVIRONMENTAL COST

  • Reduced disposal costs - the ultra long life of flywheels removes the disposal cost and headaches of chemical batteries.

  • Low cost second life - flywheels can be refurbished to secure the same performance at a lower cost.

  • Low disposal costs - flywheel components can often be taken into the main recycling systems avoiding the cost of toxic materials with chemical storage.
