Unlocking the potential of a durable energy storage technology
Keith spent his career in both industry (Rolls Royce and Noble Denton Consulting) and academia (Imperial College and City University) and is currently Chief Technology Officer of Levistor Ltd.
Electrical energy storage is essential for zero carbon energy. One such technology is kinetic energy storage, commonly known as flywheel storage. A brief history of flywheel development will be given along with the basic fundamentals, challenges and the breakthrough in cost reduction afforded by the Levistor design. Applications for this and comparison with other storage technologies will also be described.
