Compelling Value, Tested Technology: Commercial Kinetic Energy Storage System (KESS)

Key advantages of Amber Kinetics’ four-hour duration Kinetic Energy Storage System vs. chemical storage include unlimited cycling, zero degradation and a 30-year design life. Our all steel flywheels pose no risk of chemical fire, contain no hazardous chemicals, and are composed of readily obtainable materials. O&M is minimal. Amber Kinetics’ commercial products offer safe, economical and reliable energy storage for:

  • Customers in rapidly expanding utility-scale energy storage markets around the globe
  • Developing and island regions and nations with high electricity costs and unreliable grids
  • Mission critical military, industrial and commercial micro-grids
  • Cell phone infrastructure in remote locations or extreme climate conditions

The flywheel energy storage system is similarly uniquely suited to utility-scale applications including:

  • 4-Hour Flexible Resource Adequacy
  • Load-Shifting / Peak-Shaving
  • Ancillary Services such as Frequency Regulation
  • Renewable Firming
  • Spinning Reserve
  • Micro-grids
