About This Project

Electrical energy storage (EES) is a fundamental enabler to the deployment of renewable energy and provides cost-savings in other markets. The energy storage market is projected to grow from 1.1 GW in 2016 to 21.6 GW in 2025. Pumped hydroelectric storage (PHS) accounts for 98% of global energy storage, however they are geographically limited, environmentally impactful and require huge upfront costs. Other state-of-the-art solutions available in the market i.e. batteries for EES cannot scale-up to meet the demands on the electrical grids and networks. This results in an underutilisation or ineffective use of renewable energy sources.

 

Teraloop has created a highly scalable, kinetic energy storage system, which draws upon proven technologies (flywheel energy storage, magnetic levitation and brushless motors.), innovatively configured for grid-scale storage with minimal visual and environmental footprint. The scalability of the system makes it suitable for a range of applications such as voltage support, frequency regulation, peak shaving, T&D upgrade deferral & congestion relief, load following and arbitrage.
