Flywheel energy storage

Page last modified
April 11 2024

Introducing the world’s most advanced Flywheel Energy Storage Solution. Developed by the Boeing Company. Brought to themarket by QuinteQ, made in the Netherlands.

QuinteQ is pushing the state-of-the-art by offering the only frictionless, no-wear, modular flywheel, which is containerized and easy to move around. Because of this, the QuinteQ Flywheel is unique in its unlimited cycles, low standby losses, high-efficiency, and low levelized cost of storage. This results in a fifteen-fold performance increase and cost reduction versus chemical batteries.

The QuinteQ Flywheel can function as the shock-absorber and peak-shaver for the energy systems as a whole, or it can be combined with other storage systems to increase their resilience and significantly extend their lifetime. 

Furthermore, we are expanding our offer through hybrid energy storage with energy trading options, allowing our flywheels to create an extra stream of revenue during downtime.
