26th March, 2015 Dublin.

Europe’s first grid connected Hybrid flywheel system service facility was today officially announced at the The Energy Show 2015 by Mr Ged Nash, TD, the Irish Minister of State at Cabinet.

This initiative, by Irish company, Schwungrad Energie Limited, has received the support of Beacon Power, LLC, a US based company and global leader in the design, development and commercial deployment of proven flywheel energy storage technology at the utility scale.

RR Projects are delighted to announce its support of Schwungrad Energies’ innovative Hybrid flywheel project.

This technology offers a unique solution to meet the growing demand for system services, to accommodate the ever increasing penetration of intermittent renewables by ensuring grid stability and reliability.

RR Projects’ experience in developing novel technology for the power industry, for example the development of the MACC (Modular Air Cooled Condenser) for the power/energy industry, will assist the successful integration of the Schwungrad hybrid flywheel onto the Irish National Grid.
