OXTO Energy: A New Generation of Flywheel Energy Storage

INERTIA DRIVE (ID) THE NEXT GENERATION FLYWHEEL The Inertia Drive technology is based on the flywheel mechanical battery concept that stores kinetic energy in the form of a rotating mass. Our innovations focus on design, assembly and manufacturing process. Solar and wind power only produce when the wind is blowing or the sun is shining.Continue reading “OXTO Energy: A New Generation of Flywheel Energy Storage”
