Flywheels are a reliable, clean and efficient alternative energy source. In comparison to lead acid batteries, flywheels offer an innumerable amount of benefits.
First, they eliminate the batteries inevitable flaw of failure. Batteries generate heat, and heat reduces battery life. Lead-acid batteries degrade every time they are cycled (used) and one bad cell in the battery bank can take out the others, rendering equipment useless. Moreover, batteries take up a lot of space, require expensive cooling and contain hazardous chemicals, making disposal an issue. Flywheels eliminate constant battery replacements, which are needed every 2-3 years. The VYCON® patented technology design requires little maintenance and allows for a 20 year life-span.
The VYCON energy storage systems have a small footprint in comparison to batteries, and produce no emissions or carbon dioxide. The VYCON product line is ideal for consumers who have limited space and enables equipment to be used in spaces not typically thought of for electrical equipment.
Top data centers, hospitals and manufacturing plants trust VYCON energy storage systems to keep their facilities up and running 24/7.
Other advantages of the VYCON energy storage systems include:
