Ireland pilots hybrid flywheel battery system

Mon, 10/29/2018 - 00:00 -- John Shepherd

A ‘hybrid flywheel battery’ system has started operation in Ireland as part of a pilot system service project.

Peter Duffy, president of the Irish Energy Storage Association, told last week’s Energy Storage Global Conference in Brussels the pilot ‘AdD HyStor’ scheme followed a year of testing coordinated by Irish company Schwungrad Energie and state-owned transmission system operator EirGrid.

AdD HyStor, which has received nearly €3 million (US$3.4m) in European Union funding to date, is being developed in association with German companies Adaptive Balancing Power and Freqcon, and the University of Sheffield in the UK.
