Flywheels May Be The Next Big Move For Ontario’s Grid
Ontario’s grid is now turning to flywheel company Temporal, to solve its increasing renewable energy storage woes. Ontario energy minister Bob Chiarelli explained that investing in green energy technology jobs was the right move for the 21st century in order to remain competitive.
But besides the project in Ontario, Temporal is also commissioning a five megawatt storage plant near Tillsonburg, Norfolk County this year. 10 of their flywheels will be installed as one unit to store excess energy from wind turbines nearby. The facility will cost about $8 million.
