The missing link preventing renewables becoming 100% of our energy supply is being able to have access 24/7.
The missing piece is an effective and efficient storage method, that doesn't harm the planet.
We need a suitable storage method, that can cope with our day-to-day and long term needs. This is what Inter-rupt is bringing to you.
We are offering a kinetic energy store, that does not use harmful chemicals or dangerous materials. It can handle your day-to-day and long-term needs, storing efficiently, with a high power and energy density, 15 times more than batteries.
The rotary energy store is compact in design, roughly the size of a basketball. Using integrated components, the efficiency is maximum, meaning energy loss is minimum. The energy store transfers incoming electricity into rotational energy, stored in the rotor, spinning at 144,000rpm!
When energy is demanded, the rotor will slow down and provide energy and power as you need it.
The rotor is passively levitated, this means that it needs no effort to store the energy efficiently, permanent magnets are utilised, and their natural properties achieve the super-high efficient design.
Demonstrator units are underway to jump start 'getting to market'. Inter-rupt's new Patreon platform will provide Inter-rupt Patrons with progress of the demonstrator units, and the proceeding patent applications. Join to see behind the scenes!
If you have a question about the ability of the flywheel energy store, or are wondering if it suits a particular application you have in mind, just submit a question using the contact form below.
With a flywheel energy storage unit, and your own solar panels or mini wind turbines, you could become totally self-sufficient.
You can become separate from the national grid, and be a totally green off-grid home.
The Flywheel Energy Store can be used in multiple transport systems. It can work in place of batteries, similar to electric vehicles. The difference is the increase in range of the vehicle.
A vehicle that would typically reach 250 miles using fully charged batteries, could achieve over 1500miles with an equivalent bank of flywheel energy stores. Charging is instant, seconds instead of minutes.
The benefits of being a standalone and heat resistant system allows the Flywheel Energy Store to survive hostile environments, where batteries couldn't.
An example application is forming a pump system to provide running water to remote villages in developing countries. Solar panels and/or wind turbines working in conjunction with a Flywheel Energy Store unit would give running water at virtually no maintenance cost.
Energy prices vary throughout a 24 hour production process. Instead of paying peak prices, you could harvest and store your own energy. Factories and warehouses are perfect for large energy harvesting, with large roof area for solar panels. The total energy usage could be replaced by solar panels and a storage unit, and never have a bill from your energy supplier again!
Being able to store your own energy means that you will no longer have power cuts. When the national grid has a deficit in supply, we all go without power, having your own 'bank' of energy at home means this will never happen.
