Energy storage to empower the world
Working towards a fully renewable generation of electricity
We believe in the energy transition as the way to mitigate the acceleration of climate change.
To finally provide a real alternative to fossil fuels, we need to find ways to overcome the unpredictability of renewable sources,
especially in industrial applications. That's why we are creating sustainable energy storage solutions, with the goal to build a better future
for the whole Earth.
Flywheels and hybrid systems can support light rail transport by enabling the recovery of energy through regenerative braking, and electric vehicle charging stations with storage solutions that do not require any major grid upgrade.
This results in a reduction both in costs and in the carbon footprint of the infrastructure.
Our flywheel technology works perfectly in combination with batteries, for example in Virtual Power Plants, and renewable energy sources, to create more durable, economical and environmentally friendly systems.
In smart grids, datacenters and other industrial uses, flywheels are the most reliable solution for short blackouts and voltage fluctuation
From several kilowatts to megawatt class, either per device or in array:
we can devise the most suitable energy storage solution for your industry.
Sustainability to boost performances
The continuous research of innovative materials enables improved efficiency, lower costs, and reduced environmental impact.
The hubless rotor design can store over 5 times more energy per unit mass than a solid rotor, and the advanced electromagnetic stabilization system provides zero friction, making our solutions firesafe.
Teraloop's patented flywheel technology is scalable, efficient and sustainable.
Our energy storage system operates in synergy with renewable generation assets, balancing the natural variation of supply and demand. It can also be used to support battery storage, since flywheels endure frequent charging and discharging better than batteries. This makes flywheels ideal for critical industrial applications difficult to address for other technologies.

Path to energy storage with net positive impact
Flywheels can decrease the negative environmental impacts of batteries, such as critical raw material depletion. This can be done e.g. by co-location of flywheels and batteries, which extends battery lifetime.Read more
