Is possible to use flywheel energy storage batteries in electric cars and extend them to other sectors?
It seems that they have some advantages:
- they can have a higher energy density then lithium batteries;
- they are not made of dangerous polluting chemicals;
- hey can recharge really fast;
- they have a longer life cycle.
Disadvantages like gyroscopic effect can be solved adding a counter rotating flywheel inside the package itself.
It is possible to minimize the problem of “leaking” energy by using a magnetic suspension into the vacuum protective package.
The goal is to achieve a more sustainable, cheaper and better batteries.
I know that transports are mainly based on fuels that release greenhouse gases, and especially cars are responsible of that.
I think this technology deserves a lot, it seems to satisfy many very important features simultaneously.
What do yuo think? Can someone design and eventually manufacture this battery at large scale? I don’t have the necessary skills to do this at the moment. Thanks
