Schwungrads success in EU Horizon 2020 programme
Europe’s largest and the UK’s first battery flywheel system will be connected to the Irish and UK grids to help respond to energy demand as part of a new project coordinated by Schwungrad Energie and involving engineers from the University of Sheffield, Adaptive Balancing Power and Freqcon.
The €4 million euro project, with €2.9 million coming from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, will develop an innovative flywheel battery hybrid energy storage system aimed at stabilising pressure on the existing grid infrastructure in Europe.
