A flywheel mass accumulator can do more than just provide uninterrupted power. The further development of intelligent flywheel mass storage systems ensures lower costs. Also, CO2 emissions are reduced using recuperation.
- Energy costs are a high-cost factor in the manufacturing industry. Due to the growing share of renewable energies, grid fluctuations are also increasing.
- Companies can react where motors are constantly alternating between braking and acceleration and braking energy can be recuperated.
- The use of an intelligent flywheel mass storage system is an obvious solution.
- It improves the quality of the power supply, serves as a power bridging device, smooth the load peaks, and saves energy.
Among all sectors, the industry in Germany is the sector with the highest electricity consumption. At around 230 TWH, its demand accounts for almost half (2018: 47%) of total consumption.
In an industrial process, the demands that are measured are reduced particularly following political decisions such as the Paris Climate Agreement, guidelines, and directives at the national and international level, aiming to exploit this savings potential in an industry by reducing CO2 emission with the help of cutting down the consumption.
The requirements for companies, therefore, include the use of energy management systems in accordance with ISO 50001, including proof of their effectiveness in the form of efficiency improvements in accordance with ISO 50003, and the implementation of Eco-Design requirements for low-voltage electrical drive systems in accordance with the European standard EN 50598.
