We make electrification possible
QuinteQ is the shock absorber in the
With the global shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy, and with the increasing electrification of industrial and logistical activities, the grid as we know it is under an enormous squeeze. The default coping strategy of grid upgrades is no longer the optimal solution to solve this challenge. Flexibility and decentralization of energy generation, distribution, storage and consumption is key. Companies and communities will need to optimize their demand and supply locally, and that is one of the key-developments which QuinteQ can help make possible.
Peak-shaving in the energy transition
Peak shaving is an essential part of the energy transition, and our flywheel is the perfect solution for it. With our technology, you can balance the supply and demand of electricity on the grid by making optimal use of existing infrastructure that is already in place. This means that you are able to get much more out of what you already have, without the expensive and timely grid upgrade.
Our flywheel is designed for applications that experience frequent high power peaks, lasting seconds to minutes, and is the best solution for the long run. The flywheel is a circular design that can be used for endless cycles and has a long lifetime, unlike chemical batteries that have a shorter life span and end up as waste. We challenge you to rethink your energy storage infrastructure and switch to stationary storage with our flywheel as the best peak shaving solution on the market.
