Project Goals

Project Goals

Within the FlyGrid project a high-performance flywheel energy storage system will be integrated in a fully automated EV fast charging station.

FlyGrid is a disruptive technology, which can be developed and manufactured entirely in Austria and aims at reaching the following top-level goals with high socio-economic impact:

1. Reduction of charging times of EVs and increase of EV market penetration.

2. Avoidance of costly electric network expansion, as well as improved grid stability and power quality.

3. Improved integration of volatile, renewable sources for EV propulsion.



On the way to a cleaner, more sustainable future! The official start of the project is April 2018. Stay tuned for more updates!

The project has started

On my 28th 2018 the entire project consortium gathered for a kick-off meeting. Among other topics, the technical challenges of the first work packages were discussed.

Kick-Off Meeting is scheduled!

The entire project team will meet on March 28th to officially start the project!

FlyGrid presented in Australia

The concept and the first preliminary results will be presented at the renown "IEEE International Symposium on Industrial Electronics (ISIE 2018)" in Cairns, Australia.
